The Nutcracker

by P.I. Tchaicovski

A mysterious traveller. A secret. An adventure on the wings of the imagination. A melody that transports dreams. Lights, shapes, games, strings… A puppet show and shadow theatre. An adaptation of the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, with some of the best pieces of the score by Tchaicovsky.
Surprise yourself, travel with the characters and enjoy the concert.
