Ballet by Royal Classical Ballet
“The Nutcracker” P.I. Tchaikovsky is one of the most famous and beloved Russian ballets. It is based on the novella “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” by the romantic writer Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann, which describes a Christmas evening in a small German town. Tchaikovsky composed wonderful music filled with deep meaning for this fairy-tale story. He created a symphonic poem about childhood, about the maturation of the soul, about the wonders of Christmas night, about the battle of light and darkness, about pure love. Airy snowflakes, scary and funny rats, masterfully dancing dolls – all together immerses the viewer in the atmosphere of a bright holiday.
