The Nutcracker Ballet is based on E.T.A. Hoffman's tale, The Nutcracker and Mouse King. With the immortal score of Peter I.
Tchaikovsky and the choreography of Petipa and Ivanov, the Nutcracker ballet was originally performed in Russia in 1892.
The enchantment of the Sugar Plum Fairy will
come alive for children of all ages in this stirring production. Lumière Ballet's artistic directors Svetlana Caton and Venti Petrov bring their knowledge and
passion to the stage and allow the children to tell the story. The joy of the season comes to life as snow drifts gently down and the Snow Queen and Waltzing Snow Flakes
perform for Clara and her prince.
