The Nutcracker returns to the Greek National Opera


After last year’s success, Tchaikovsky’s legendary ballet, The Nutcracker, is being restaged at the GNO for a run of 15 performances from November 23, 2013 until January 5, 2014.

In The Nutcracker, one of the world’s loveliest Christmas tales, there is a fuzzy line between reality and dreams. Tchaikovsky’s legendary ballet will be restaged by Renato Zanella, whose impressive choreography is based on the original story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. In the ballet’s second act, Zanella uses part of the music from the Overture-Fantasia of Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet.

In the GNO Ballet’s production, the choreography focuses on the dream of Clara, presenting it as a dramatic transition into adulthood through love and fear. The distinguished German set and costume designer Christof Cremer has created dreamy sets and costumes for the production, evoking an atmosphere that lives up to the descriptions of the famous fairytale.
