Tchaikovsky's ballet world -- it is a world of magic, wonderland and fairy tales. The score to Tchaikovsky's beloved Nutcracker is one of the most ingenious and brilliant ever composed for a ballet, and of extreme elegance. Famous numbers such as the Waltz of the Flowers, the Waltz of the Snowflakes, the motifs of the Divertissement enchant children and take adults back to their childhood.
The story of the Nutcracker is as Christmassy as the scent of baked apples and the eternal glittering tinsel: the story of children, to whom a given Nutcracker shows distant lands and distant peoples in a dream on Christmas Eve, enchants young and old again and again as a Christmas ballet.
Here now comes a very special, beautiful version of this ballet classic for all children aged 4 to 94 years on stage, created for children, but by no means childish! The loving performance is danced by a top-class ballet ensemble with outstanding international soloists in a sophisticated way and with great elegance. Colorful costumes and an imaginative stage design promise to enchant every child's heart.
The narrator, who leads through the whole performance, deserves a special mention. Catchy little poems full of wit, charm and love captivate young and old.
The performance takes its young and old visitors into the wonderland of the playful and romantic, fairy-tale and dreamy, which should be part of every child's dream!
