For the 55th year, Les Grands Ballets’ magical Nutcracker returns to warm the hearts of young and old. This splendid ballet, a choreographic legacy of the late Fernand Nault based on Hoffman’s original tale, sumptuously embodies the spirit of Christmas with its graceful entertainment, magical scenery and stunning costumes, to Tchaikovsky’s irresistible music.
Treat yourself and your loved ones to one of the finest gifts of the holiday season: an enchanting journey to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets! Along with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince, a gallery of colourful characters will dazzle you: the Snow Queen, the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Mouse King, Dew Drop Fairies, reindeers, Matryoshka dolls, Oriental dancers and so many more!
