The Nutcracker by The Russian State Ballet and Opera House
Russian State Ballet and Opera House return to Dubai Opera with an all-time Christmas favourite – The Nutcracker*. The beauty of Russian ballet set to Tchaikovsky’s splendid score combines to create a living art form that is difficult to forget.
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.
Snow flurries, sweets, princes, magic and love, are just some of the elements that this renowned Russian company will bring together. The Nutcracker is a highly accessible ballet, full of familiar music such as the Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
The Nutcracker is an eternal seasonal favourite and a must-see during the festive season!
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky. Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians
‘For many people, The Nutcracker is the true curtain-raiser to Christmas, bringing a special magic to the advent season. This production holds nothing back in any department, and the audience was rewarded with a show of great power and presence.’ – Jim Gillespie, Review Hub.
