The "Nutcracker" is a popular children's story that has also developed into a world classic of ballet on the dance floor and stage. The story is as Christmassy as the smell of baked apples or the glitter of tinsel and always enchants young and old.

The piece, which premiered in 1892, is one of the legendary "Tchaikovsky-Petipa ballets" and is undoubtedly one of the most popular ballet classics. The story of little Marie, who receives a nutcracker from her uncle Drosselmeier on Christmas Eve and dreams of him turning into a fairytale prince, fascinates every year. The gripping battle of the tin soldier against the mouse king or the journey through the magic world will enchant children and take adults back to their childhood. The fairytale staging by Petipa and the incomparable music by Tchaikovsky manage to create perfection on stage in the interplay of choreography and composition.
