Tchaikovsky’s winter wonderland comes to life in this special production of The Nutcracker. Choreography by Rudolph Nureyev. Starring Liudmila Konovalova as Clara, and Vladimir Shishov as Drosselmeier and The Prince. From the Wiener Staatsballett.
The Nutcracker is based on a tale by Hoffmann adapted by Alexandre Dumas. Like a two-sided mirror reflecting the dreams of a composer who took refuge in the realms of the imaginary, the Paris Opera is reviving the original diptych. Alain Altinoglu conducts and Dmitri Tcherniakov stages this production that symbolises the link between opera and ballet.
