The Nutcracker ballet by St-Petersburg Tchaikovsky Ballet Theatre will be performed at the stage of the Dubai Opera on December 4-7.
One of the most popular ballets of all time, and one of the most beloved Christmas stories in the world. The Nutcracker is based on German author E.T.A. Hoffman’s classic 1816 tale “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.” This classic children’s story will be brought to life by the St-Petersburg Tchaikovsky Ballet Theatre with exquisite dancing, beautiful sets and Tchaikovsky’s timeless score performed by a live orchestra.
It’s a Christmas Eve party and young Clara Stahlbaum receives a nutcracker from her mysterious Godfather Drosselmeyer. As midnight approaches, enchantment envelopes the household. The Nutcracker springs to life to battle the Rat King and his evil curse. Finally free, the Nutcracker transforms into a prince and invites Clara on a dreamlike journey to a Land of Enchantment.
