We all know the ballet music Tchaikovsky composed for this fairy tale, in which a nutcracker comes to life on Christmas Eve to lead a small girl into a fantasy world. But his marvellous musical interpretation skips many of the extraordinary adventures in the original story, which are recounted here.
Among the delights, the Dijon Bourgogne Orchestra and cast of artists invite you to discover, for example, how the little soldier ends up being transformed into a nutcracker…
A commission of the Orchestre de Paris, this is the perfect show to enjoy with the entire family.
