Experience the magic of Christmas with the classic masterpiece The Nutcracker!

This Christmas tale tells the story of young Clara who receives a gift of a Nutcracker shaped like a little man. In a mysteriously enchanted night, the toys, led by the Nutcracker, engage in a fierce battle against the evil mice in the house. Awakened by the noise, Clara decides to face her fears by taking part in the battle and saves her beloved Nutcracker from danger. Moved by her courage and full of gratitude, he transforms himself into Prince Charming and takes Clara to a fairytale kingdom.
A ballet in two acts, The Nutcracker was first performed in December 1892 in St. Petersburg at the Mariinsky Theatre. Tchaikovsky's famous music performed by the talented orchestra and the virtuosity of the dancers, enhanced by breathtaking sets and costumes, will thrill young and old in this fantastic world. This unforgettable score will plunge you into a magical atmosphere and make you relive your childhood dreams.
Discover the beauty of this jewel of the classical repertoire, ideal for the Christmas season.
