Casse-Noisette - FARaway festival des arts à Reims


Yacobson Ballet / Piotr Illitch Tchaïkovski

Présenté par l’Opéra de Reims

After Sleeping Beauty last season, the iconic St. Petersburg troupe, the Yacobson Ballet, return to the Opéra de Reims with another masterpiece from the classical repertoire: The Nutcracker. Created at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg in December 1892, The Nutcracker is undoubtedly the world’s most performed ballet. Conceived as a magical illustration of the many stories told to children in street theatre performances in St. Petersburg, this ballet is the result of a new collaboration between Tchaikovsky and Marius Petitpa. Between dream, fairy tale and romance, the Yacobson Ballet troupe offer audiences a magnificent classical ballet that makes use of the 1934 choreography by Vasily Vainonen for the Bolshoi. A moment of pure grace!
