Ballet in 2 Acts
Saint Petersburg Classical Ballet
Music by Piotr Tchaïkovski
Choreography by Mikhail Venshchikov
The Nutcracker as directed by Mikhail Venshchikov stays faithful to the traditions of the classical St. Petersburg ballet; all the principal choreographic pieces are preserved, according to the original concept of the show's first directors, Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. Apart from the universally familiar pieces, such as Valse des Flacons de Neige, Grand Ballabile and Divertissements des Jouets, the show will include pieces that will be reenacted for the first time in 100 years, such as the legendary Adagio à l'Echarpe from Act 1.
Both children and adults will definitely enjoy their chance to be immersed in the atmosphere of a winter fairy tale. The Nutcracker by the St. Petersburg Classical Ballet will provide an unforgettable New Year's Eve experience for the whole family.
