The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker in a child-friendly, entertaining performance with narrator for children from 4 years. The performance takes its young and old visitors into the wonderland of the playful and romantic, the fairytale and the dreamy, which should be part of every child's dream!

A world of magic, wonderland and fairy tales. The score of Tchaikovsky's popular Nutcracker is one of the most ingenious and brilliant ever composed for a ballet, and of extreme elegance. Famous numbers such as the flower waltz, the snowflake waltz, the divertissement motifs enchant children and take adults back to their childhood.

The story of the nutcracker is as Christmassy as the scent of baked apples and the eternal glittering tinsel: The story of children, to whom a gift nutcracker shows distant lands and peoples in a dream on Christmas Eve, enchants young and old again and again as a Christmas ballet.

The ballet classic for children

Here is a very special, beautiful version of this ballet classic for all children from 4 to 94 years on stage, created for children, but by no means childish! The loving performance is danced with great elegance by a top-class ballet ensemble with outstanding international soloists. Colourful costumes and an imaginative stage design promise to enchant every child's heart.

The narrator who leads through the whole performance deserves a special mention. Catchy little poems full of wit, charm and love captivate young and old.
