Fantastic ballet on the fairy tale of E.T.A. Hoffmann

Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

St. Petersburg Ballet Festival presents the Ballet The Nutcracker. The magnificent design allows the viewer to be transferred to a beautiful fairy-tale world. The ballet The Nutcracker is filled with elements of a classic fairy tale: romance, poetry, the struggle between good and evil and, of course, love.

In the house of Stalbaum guests are going to Christmas. On Christmas Eve Drosselmeyer prepared wonderful Christmas presents for the children - winding dolls, and for his goddaughter Marie made a strange doll for cracking nuts - the Nutcracker. At night the Nutcracker comes to life and turns into a beautiful prince. In Marie the dream of the revived Nutcracker is to fight Myshin King, to go along with her on a fabulous journey, and turn into a beautiful prince with whom Marie will be danced in dance.

The ballet is accompanied by a symphony orchestra.
