This behind-the-scenes journey delves deep into the making of The Nutcracker, revealing the hidden secrets and intricate craftsmanship that bring this timeless tale to life.
Venture into backstage areas that are usually off-limits to the public. Each tour will be slightly different but all routes are guaranteed to go to backstage. You will have the opportunity to hold pointe shoes and tutus from previous productions. Take photos on the famous ‘Bridge of Aspiration’ which links The Royal Ballet School to the Royal Opera House and overlooks the iconic Floral Street.
At the end of the tour, enjoy a complimentary drink on our cosy rooftop terrace, overlooking the bustling Covent Garden Piazza. The two drink options include either: a glass of house wine, mulled wine, gin and tonic or beer; or a range of soft drinks including luxury sodas and tonics from London Essence. Take home a beautifully crafted wooden Nutcracker themed Christmas tree decoration to remember the experience.
The meeting point for this tour is the Ground Floor cloakroom of the Royal Opera House.
