The Nutcracker arrives at the International Convention Centre Wales

The must-see show will be the first of many entertainment events to take place at the new ICC Wales Theatre at the Celtic Manor Resort. Seating 1,500 people over two levels, the state-of-the-art theatre will play host to 37 performances of The Nutcracker on Ice over the Christmas and New Year period – a combination of evening, matinee and morning shows.


Following sold-out seasons at the Royal Albert Hall and The London Palladium, The Imperial Ice Stars are bringing the amazing ice spectacular, The Nutcracker on Ice, to the UK’s most prestigious new event destination, the International Convention Centre Wales.


Set in early-1900s St Petersburg, The Nutcracker on Ice follows the classic Russian tale of Marie, the little girl whose love brings to life her cherished Nutcracker doll – a magical Christmas gift from her mysterious godfather, Drosselmeyer.

As midnight strikes on Christmas Eve, the toy comes to life, sweeping young Marie to a winter wonderland of enchantment where she meets the Mouse King, the Nutcracker Prince and, of course, the Sugar Plum Fairy.


The production incorporates state-of-the-art projection, including stunning LED illuminated effects and spectacular flying sequences.


Ian Edwards, Chief Executive at ICC Wales and the Celtic Manor Resort, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Imperial Ice Stars to perform at our first entertainment event at ICC Wales. It is the ideal venue to host such a wonderful show and such an illustrious group of performers, and we are excited to provide the stage for their return to Wales.”


Tickets start from £20.
