After 10 years of performing the stage director and choreographer Youri Vŕmos's
singular and extremely successful version, we are preparing a brand-new production, created by Petr Zuska, Artistic Director of the Czech National Ballet. The legendary
Christmas tale, based on E. T. A. Hoffmann's spellbinding story and adapted by the choreographer Marius Petipa, will be presented in a new, original spirit. A story abounding
in poetics, humour, images and magic will unfurl to the sounds of Tchaikovsky's celebrated and sublime music. The magic of winter, Advent and Christmas, the mystery of Prague,
Czech and Central European Yuletide traditions, and, naturally, unlimited freedom, imagination of the child's soul and dreams.
Performances: Dec 01 Thursday
