A Christmas party, an unexpected gift and a kingdom full of sweets… everyone knows the story of The Nutcracker. Trust us, though – you’ve never seen it like this. Pianist Alexandra Dariescu, a single ballerina, and Tchaikovsky’s wonderful music come together with astonishing, state-of-the-art animation and digital effects to retell this seasonal classic like it’s never been told before, creating a fantastical world so real that you might even start to believe in sugar plum fairies! But the magic is real – and it’s never felt so fresh. A visual and musical treat for all ages.

Liverpool Philharmonic Family Concerts are a great way for children and adults to come together to experience a full symphony orchestra performing music live. Concerts last about one hour. Fidgeting is allowed, and the whole family is welcome, so come along and give it a try!
