Musik: P.I. Tschaikowsky

The "Nutcracker" is a beloved children's story that has also become a world classic of ballet on the dance and stage floors. The story is as Christmassy as the smell of baked apples or the glitter of tinsel and never fails to enchant young and old alike.

The story of little Marie, who is given a nutcracker by her uncle Drosselmeier on Christmas Eve and dreams of it turning into a fairy-tale prince, fascinates every year anew. The thrilling battle of the tin soldier against the Mouse King, or the journey through the magical world enchant children and take adults back to their childhood. The fairy-tale staging by Petipa and the incomparable music by Tchaikovsky manage to create perfection on stage in the interplay of choreography and composition. Be our guest and be inspired and drawn along by the art of telling a story through dance and music.

The Russian Ballet Festival Moscow can be seen throughout the country beginning in November with over 80 performances. The 45-member, award-winning ensemble of the Russian State Theater for Opera and Ballet Ufa from Rudolf Nureyev's hometown, has made several guest appearances in Brazil, the Netherlands, China, Mexico, Portugal, the USA, Thailand and France. At this year's performance in Berlin, the ensemble will be supported by a 30-piece live orchestra.
