    Staatliches Russisches Ballett Moskau - Der Nussknacker

At least once in your life you should have experienced the "Swan Lake" or the "Nutcracker" in its pure form on stage. The two best-known Russian ballet classics are as much a part of a successful Christmas season as the ribbon to the present, and not only for ballet lovers. The Compagnie des Staatlichen Russischen Ballett Moskaus has guaranteed a special experience for forty years.

Under the direction of Vyacheslav Gordeev, the award-winning ensemble stands for exhilarating stage settings, magnificent costumes, but above all for grace, passion and the highest perfection. Inside and outside Russia, the state-funded company, headquartered in Moscow, thus fulfils an important ambassador function for Russian culture.

In particular, the many young visitors prove that classical ballet is able to inspire people of all ages again and again. This is due on the one hand to the pure and inexhaustible beauty of the classical form, and on the other hand to a new generation of master dancers who constantly bring new elements and a new kind of perfection to the classics.

Connoisseurs and lovers appreciate the State Russian Ballet Moscow above all for its uniquely clear, pure and classical Russian ballet art. Emerging from the tradition of the Bolshoi Theatre, the stars of the Russian ballet scene have been enchanting their audiences worldwide and across generations since 1979. In winter 2019/2020 the exceptional talents of Moscow's most successful tour ensemble will return.

You don't have to be an expert to grasp the grace, grace and technical perfection of Moscow's State Russian Ballet. However, one is allowed to retain a certain amount of childlike reverie and imagination in order to indulge in the unique, danced dream and fairy tale worlds. Let yourself be carried away into the fascinating world of classical Russian ballet! The State Russian Ballet Moscow - from December 2019 on tour through Germany and Switzerland.

Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" - a fairytale love story

The fabulous "Swan Lake" story of the enchanted Princess Odette with the music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is one of the great, timeless classics of ballet. The "Swan Lake" requires on the one hand dance excellence, on the other hand acting talent - and both implemented with playful ease. The story tells of Prince Siegfried, who on the eve of his 21st birthday observes a swarm of wild swans and decides to go hunting. Before that, his mother admonished him to choose a wife at the ball tomorrow. When the prince takes his shot, the most graceful of the swans turns into a beautiful woman. It is Odette. She was enchanted by the sorcerer Red Beard and can only be freed by the oath of eternal fidelity and honest love. The prince promises to make this oath. But Red Beard overheard the couple. He prevents Odette from appearing at the ball and instead smuggles his daughter Odile into the ball in the shape of the (now black-clad) Swan Queen. The deception succeeds. When Red Beard reveals the deception, Siegfried, horrified, hurries to the lake. In the last act he meets the real Odette and the sorcerer Red Beard. A final battle for true love begins.

Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" - the wonderful Christmas classic

The famous story after E.T.A. Hoffmann is about the girl Clara who on Christmas Eve receives a large doll, a nutcracker soldier, as a gift. At night the nutcracker suddenly comes to life - but not only him. With an army of tin soldiers, the nutcracker has to defend himself against the mouse king and his mouse troops in the Christmassy decorated living room. Clara hurries to help him and the saved nutcracker turns into a prince before her eyes. After a hike through the winter forest, the two celebrate a sweet and exuberant party at the jam castle until dawn. With its nostalgic charm, "Der Nussknacker" offers the perfect setting for the coming Christmas.
