The Nutcracker, the most beautiful Christmas story, comes back to enthrall children and grown-ups in a new impressive choreography by GNO Ballet Director Konstantinos Rigos. From 17 December and for a run of 7 festive performances in the Stavros Niarchos Hall, at the SNFCC.

The Nutcracker is rightly regarded as one of the most popular ballets in the repertoire, since the emotional power and theatricality of Tchaikovsky's music has enduringly captivated both children and adult audiences. The Nutcracker was first performed in its initial two-act version at the Mariinsky Imperial Theatre in St Petersburg on 18 December 1892, choreographed by Lev Ivanov, with a libretto by Marius Petipa and music by Tchaikovsky. The original storyline was inspired by E. T. A. Hoffmann's tale The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. Numerous other choreographies have followed over the years, including those of George Balanchine (1954), Yuri Grigorovich (1966), John Cranko (the same year), Rudolf Nureyev (1967) and John Neumeier (1971).

Konstantinos Rigos notes about the new choreography: On Christmas Eve, as Clara opens up her presents she finds a strange toy, her favourite Nutcracker. In her delicate childhood world, dreams and reality blend in the sweetest way. In the Nutcracker's arms she will have the most amazing dreams but also the most frightening nightmares. This time the Nutcracker of the GNO Ballet will attempt to bring out both the dark and the bright, spectacular side of the known fairy tale. A new strange world is created on stage, in which Clara's glass room meets the bright, colourful objects hovering on stage, the baroque portals leading to the underground kingdom of mice, but also to the wonderfully lit Christmas tree. The costumes by Deux Hommes, in their second collaboration with the GNO Ballet, add that touch of magic every fairy tale needs.
