The Nutcracker by Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is one of the most popular and most frequently performed ballet pieces in the world. The Slovenian National Theatre - the Opera and Ballet of Ljubljana’s current production of the ballet has been staged by the famous choreographer Youri Vamos, who based the Nutcracker story on Charles Dickens’ tale A Christmas Carole.
The story is set in a 19th century London suburb, where a stingy and ruthless money lender named Scrooge at first cannot even bear the thought of festivities, but the cheerful festive atmosphere soon draws him into the whirl of Christmas merrymaking.
Director and choreographer: Youri Vàmos
Conductor: Marko Gašperšič
Performed by: Orchestra, choir and soloists of the Slovenian National Theatre - Opera and Ballet Ljubljana and guests soloists
