The much loved ballet The Nutcracker return to Krakow´s Opera House!
The current production has been created by Emil Wesolowiski, who is one of Poland´s most noted choreographers! The wonderful costumes are created by Maria Balcerek.
The show is originally from Russia, and was premiered in St. Petersburg in 1892. In the Krakow version there are also several Russian dancers.
The story is about a family gathering on Christmas Eve. Thanks to the gift of a magical nutcracker, the young Clara finds her world transformed on midnight. She heads to a great adventure, taking in a colourful cast and characters, ranging from the Sugar Plum Fairy to the Nutcracker Prince himself.
The Nutcracker will be performed at Opera Krakowska until January 12th.
