Travel to the magical Land of Sweets in this delightful two-act ballet which has become a Christmas time tradition. We meet an imaginative child named Marie and her enchanted Nutcracker doll. As the clock strikes midnight, audiences can expect plenty of surprises: this is a world where nutcrackers turn into princes, toys come to life, sweets dance, and animals talk and lead great armies…
The libretto is adapted from two fantastical stories: E.T.A Hoffmann’s “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” and Alexandre Dumas’ “The Nutcracker”. In this classic Bolshoi production, viewers can expect two hours of pure enchantment featuring some of the company’s greatest artists and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. Premiered in 1982, this tale of magic and imagination still resonates with the young and the young at heart – a great festive outing for lovers, friends and the whole family on those cold winter nights!
