I included the times as they are so all over the place - I couldn't really just put matinee or evening!

The Peter Wright Nutcracker for the Royal Ballet, should, as Lolly says, be seen. You may already have seen it on a BBC/Opus Arte DVD. There will be another non-traditional Nutcracker in London this Christmas - by Matthew Bourne (as in male Swan Lake), which Lillian may also want to think about.
Some ENB Nutcracker reviews

Judith, Mackrell, The Guardian
Ismene Brown, The Telegraph
I should mention that Richard Jones, a regular contributor to balletalert, took some of his students to see ENB's Nutcracker. They were greatly entertained.

I'm taking along two little girls (one six and one eight-year old) and was hoping the production would be entertaining for them as well as for a die hard balletomane like me . I took one of them to see The Royal's Giselle last year and she held up quite well until the end.
As we only have time for one of these companies, which do you think I should spring for (I'm up against their mother who thinks they should see My Fair Lady instead).
Also, I would probably be smart to purchase tickets ASAP no?

Yes, book quickly - there is not much left in the way of online booking so you may have to phone. Much time will be saved with choosing seats if you can see a seating plan of the auditorium: http://www.roh.org.u...rentLA=En&cl=31
ROH seemingly rearranged their booking plan to get their Nutcracker audience in first, before the other two, so that is one reason the tickets might be hard to come by - they have been on sale for a lot longer than the other productions. But good luck! I am sure you will find something!
