With Tchaikovsky’s mesmerising score, a Christmas tree that magically grows, a battle between toy soldiers and an army of mice led by the Mouse King, matched with exquisite designs and world-famous melodies, Peter Wright’s enchanting production of The Nutcracker has enthralled audiences for more than 30 years. This year’s festive treat is presented by Darcey Bussell and stars Lauren Cuthbertson, Federico Bonelli, Francesca Hayward and Alexander Campbell.

No Man’s Land  LIVE: Thursday, December 15, at 7pm. Encore, Sunday, December 18, at 8pm
Following their hit run on Broadway, Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter’s comic classic No Man’s Land, broadcast live to cinemas from Wyndham’s Theatre, London. One summer’s evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst’s stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men. The broadcast will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast and director Sean Mathias.
