Nutcracker The classic ballet by Tchaikovsky Bolshoi, Live Broadcast

Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich Conducted By: Pavel Klinichev Starring: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

On Christmas Eve, Marie's godfather, Drosselmeyer, gives her a strange toy: a wooden nutcracker carved in the shape of a little man. At midnight, when the celebrations are over, all the toys magically come to life. Based on E. T. A. Hoffmann's story, The Nutcracker is one of the greatest classics in the world. With iconic music by Tchaikovsky, and enchanting sets and costumes, this beautiful tale explores the universal themes of love, power and evil. Masterfully interpreted by the Bolshoi dancers, it will enchant the whole family for the festive season, proving that one is never too young or too old to be swept away by The Nutcracker.
