It became possible to spend a winter evening with the whole family in the interiors of the Imperial Theater, to be inspired by the story of Masha and the Nutcracker and to recharge with a festive mood thanks to the modern technologies of artists and decorators.
The magnificent design allows the viewer to be transported into a wonderful fairy-tale world. The Nutcracker ballet is filled with elements of a classic fairy tale: romance, poetry, the struggle between good and evil and, of course, love.
At the Stahlbaum house, guests gather for Christmas. On Christmas Eve, Drosselmeyer prepared wonderful Christmas gifts for children - clockwork dolls, and for his goddaughter Marie made a strange nutcracker doll for cracking nuts. At night, the Nutcracker comes to life and turns into a handsome prince. In Marie's dream, the revived Nutcracker will have to fight the Mouse King, go with her on a fabulous journey, and turn into a handsome prince, with whom Marie will dance in circles.
The ballet is accompanied by the Olympic Orchestra Symphony Orchestra
