A glorious feast for the eyes and ears, this nostalgic extravaganza features a riveting fusion of local historical characters, charming wildlife and shared Hong Kong traditions, set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved iconic score with Gabriela Tylesova’s luxuriously detailed sets and costumes.

A new classic for our city and the festive event of the year, this family-friendly The Nutcracker eloquently showcases the diversity and splendour of Hong Kong and will enchant audiences of all ages.
