Ballet for children with music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky
It's Christmas Eve. After the wonderful festivities, little Klara falls into a deep sleep. She dreams of a fantastic journey to the fairytale sugar country, accompanied by the nutcracker, her most beautiful gift.
Just like Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky's famous ballet music, the production of the "Kinder Ballett Kompagnie Berlin" takes up essential motifs from E. T. A. Hoffmann's fairy tale "Nutcracker and Mouse King": Before the little girl's journey begins, there is a fight between mice and toy soldiers. When the nutcracker finally becomes a life-size prince and accompanies Klara to the land of her dreams, the girl experiences what it feels like to grow up and that dreams can come true if you take her seriously enough. And finally there is a big party ...
The production by David Simic promises a wonderful introduction to the Christmas season. The pupils of the"Kinder Ballett Kompagnie Berlin" dance there. The performance is aimed at children and their parents.
