The greatest Nutcracker in the world !

From snowflakes to special effects but undoubtedly still the ideal family show !
Ballet and orchestra of the “Grand Opera” of Ukraine

Everyone knows the story of Clara who shrinks when the evening falls while the toys miraculously come to life …..A enchanting story for more than one hundred years !

With deep respect for the essence and the charm of the story, French choreographer Johan Nus (« Around the World in 80 days », « The Umbrellas of Cherbourg », « Swan lake on the Water ») brings new life to this great classic by adding a modern touch.

Through digital projections and classical decors he introduces spectacular special effects as falling snow during « The Waltz of the Snowflakes » or the arrival of the troika pulled by movable, lifelike reindeers !

Thinking outside the box, the show uses the whole height of the stage to create a suprise effect. In addition, the show can count on a classical ballet of 40 dancers, circus artists but also comedians of all dimensions and weight who give this spectacle of acrobatic stunts and elegant dance steps a dimension of « reality ».

Undoubtedly the biggest and most spectacular Nutcracker ever !
Accompanied of course by a big orchestra as a ballet without an orchestra is not a real ballet !
