Double treat with Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker”

The aficionados of Tchaikovsky’s immortal work will have a chance to watch two versions of it, one performed on stage, the other on ice. The Bucharest Na­tio­nal Opera presents, on Christ­mas Eve, the ballet performance “The Nutcracker”, by Piotr Illych Tchaikovsky. Thanks to the magic of Christmas, the tiniest and most humble gift that children receive, even a nutcracker, may lead them into a fairy-tale world. The cast of the performance scheduled for December 24, 6:30 pm, includes the ONB artists: Clara – Cristina Dijmaru, The Nutcracker – Vlad Toader, Drosselmeyer – Antonel Oprescu, Fritz – Bodan Canila, The Sugar Fairy – Laura Blica Toader. The performance is accompanied by the Opera’s orchestra, conducted by Tiberiu Soare. The classical ballet performance, in two acts, is also included in the repertoire of the Saint Petersburg State Ballet on Ice. The public in Bucharest will have a chance to embark on a retelling of the wondrous Christmas tale on January 21, 2010, at the Palace Hall. Set up as an alternative to classical ballet, the Saint Petersburg Ballet on Ice is world-famous for its exquisite performances, which combine figure skating and classical Russian ballet. In the past five years, this production was performed, to great acclaim, in the most prestigious halls in the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, China, Spain, Korea, Taiwan, Greece, Portugal, Ireland or Malta, offering, on every occasion, a unique extravaganza by some of the world’s finest figure skaters. The Saint Petersburg Ballet on Ice can boast over 7,000 performances worldwide, amazing, each and every time, by a remarkable mixture of art forms, intertwined in an innovative and spectacular performance.

“The Nutcracker”, composed by P.I. Tchaikovsky, premiered on December 6, 1892, at the St. Petersburg Mariinski Theatre.
