About This Event

 The Nutcracker

Following 2017 sell-out performances of Swan Lake, Moscow Ballet La Classique returns to Australia to present the jewel of classical ballet, Tchaikovsky's spectacular masterpiece The Nutcracker.

La Classique was founded in 1990 by it's current director Elik Melikov.

La Classique with it's artistic ballet mastery, lavish costumes and magnificent stage sets will take us on a journey back in time to the frost-covered, gas lit world of Clara, her beloved Nutcracker doll and the Magician Drosselmeyer.

This romantic tale with it's blend of magic and realism brings to life the popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the famous 'Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy' and 'The Waltz of the Flowers'.

The greatest success of Russian theatre is undoubtedly classical ballet.

With this delightful production of the much loved Nutcracker, La Classique captures the imagination, the passion, the humour and magic of the ballet.

'Is the Dream for real... or is it just a fairytale'


Presented by:  Moscow Ballet La Classique
