The “loveliest Christmas tale” is restaged during the festive Christmas period at the Olympia Theatre and once again will be the best Christmas gift for children and adults alike. Tchaikovsky’s famous music, marked by its emotional force and theatricality, the dreamy choreography by Renato Zanella and the sets and costumes directly from the Vienna State Opera transport the audience to the world of fairy tales. In the exceptionally successful production of the GNO Ballet, the choreography focuses on the dream of Clara which, through love and fear, proves to be a dramatic transition into adulthood. The Nutcracker serves as a showcase for the impressive abilities of the GNO acclaimed dancers, whereas the participation of the GNO’s Children’s chorus adds to the magic.
