A Christmas show par excellence, the Nutcracker takes us to the house of little Clara where, during Christmas night, a wonderful fairyland begins. In the living room, the toys come alive and the nutcracker turns into a prince charming. Several dances are linked: Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, as well as the famous pas de deux of the Fairy and the ballet of the Flowers.
Presented for the first time on 18 December 1892 at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, the Nutcracker has become a true musical symbol of the Romantic repertoire and one of the most popular ballet music in the world.
