Tchaikovsky’s ballet The Nutcracker is one of the fixed stars of the classical repertoire of ballet ensembles. Since its premiere in 1892 it has undergone many changes in both the dramaturgical and choreographic conception, yet its popularity among children and adults alike has been constantly growing. The Hungarian choreographer and recent artistic director of Deutsche Oper am Rhein Düsseldorf, Youri Vàmos, was inspired by Charles Dickens’s fairy tale and introduced a new staging version of this ballet. The story takes place in 19th-century London and tells of the magic of Christmas in transforming human character. We firmly believe that this performance will further enrich the festive Christmas atmosphere and will be a beautiful present not only for our youngest audience members.
