The Nutcracker

A dream whirling around the fantasy and magic of a Christmas night.

Since we’re little kids, we’ve been told tales. Some of them quite amazing. “Once upon a time…” narratives full of creatures, fantasy and experiences. The Nutcracker is one of them. And now the story leaves the pages for the stage: Once upon a time, there was a little girl called Clara. As a Christmas gift, she receives a nutcracker with human appearance, dressed like a soldier, with disproportionate legs and head. Clara is delighted and over the moon with the gift. Fritz, her brother, breaks the nutcracker while playing. Clara was inconsolable and falls asleep cuddling with her loving but now broken gift, ending up dreaming …

Come along! Get on this journey of enchantment and dancing, come and discover Clara’s dream.

Will you meet us there? We’ll be waiting.
