Christmas story on New Year’s Eve
Based on the fairy tale about «The Nutcracker and the Mouse King»

Let’s keep this beautiful tradition to celebrate Christmas with our favorite story.
For many people, the celebration of Christmas is associated primarily with the music of P. Tchaikovsky. It brings magic to the Christmas atmosphere. Everyone has their favorite piece from the «The Nutcracker» music.

The magical story tells of a girl, Claire, who, on Christmas Eve, receives the mysterious Nutcracker from her uncle – a wooden toy in the shape of a soldier. Late at night, Claire finds herself in a magical world where the Nutcracker comes to life and fights an army of mice. He then turns into a handsome prince and goes to the Land of Sweets with Claire.

The Ukrainian Classical Ballet troupe was founded in Kyiv in 2017. Over its history, the troupe has performed more than 800 ballet performances in more than 20 countries around the world! And now, for the first time, there will be an opportunity to introduce the Latvian public to the wonderful art of the troupe.

We created our version of the Nutcracker. We decided to move away from the typical canons of the classical performance. In the ballet choreography you can find fragments of modern, traditional, and even street dance. We are not shy about thinking broadly and using the entire wide range of accessible choreography.

Specialists from various fields, from leading theater artists to representatives of the fashion industry, took part in the creation of the stage design and props for the performance. Furthermore, special effects, elements of video projection, and much more were used in the design of the show.
