Nutcracker | Kiev Ballet
07 DECEMBER 2024

The Nutcracker is one of the most performed and popular ballets of all time. The music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov and the Ukrainian dancers of the Kiev Ballet combine to create a stunning show full of beauty, magic and enchantment.

Nutcracker tells the story of Clara, a girl who receives a Christmas gift from her godfather, a nutcracker in the shape of a soldier doll. During the night, she is transported to a magical world where toys come to life and the nutcracker transforms into a charming prince. Together, Clara and the Prince travel through a fantasy world full of sweets and flowers, and fight against the evil Mouse King and his followers.

The Nutcracker is a ballet full of magical and dazzling moments, from the snow scene and the beautiful dance of flowers, to the iconic dance of the sugar fairy and the exciting final Grand Pas de Deux. Tchaikovsky's music is bright and emotional, with unforgettable melodies that evoke the joy and enchantment of Christmas.

It is a magical and enchanting ballet that has captivated audiences of all ages for generations. His music and choreography are a celebration of the beauty, fantasy and joy of life, and his legacy will continue to inspire and move viewers for many years to come.

Kiev Ballet was born in 2017, from a dream of the famous solo dancer of the Kiev Opera Theater, Viktor Ishchuk: the creation of a young company that would bring together the most prominent stars from all over Ukraine and present talent, mastery to the world and the professionalism of artists in your country.

Their first performances conquered the most important theaters in the world and, since then, they have given more than 600 shows in different countries, including Portugal, always with sold out sessions.
