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 !
The biggest Nutcracker in the world !
