After the sell-out performances of Swan Lake last year, Russian National Ballet returns with the delightful production of The Nutcracker. The Nutcracker – a charming and kindly fairy tale is one of the jewels of Tchaikovsky’s repertoire.
The original Christmas story is based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A. Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a sad little girl, whose godfather, Drosselmeier, gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve. In her lively imagination it turns into a prince and the magic starts…
This eternal seasonal favourite will be an unforgettable journey in the run-up to Christmas and an ideal introduction to audiences of any age to the magic that is classical ballet. A wonderful treat full of glitter for the whole family!
