Cajkovskij - The Nutcracker - ballet

One of the most beautiful ballet stories – the Nutcracker. The fairytale beings of the Prince and the Mouse King, as well as Clara, a good-hearted and courageous girl, are brought to life in the superb music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The ballet was based upon the story by E.T.A. Hoffman. In a small town guests meet over the Christmas holidays. The children eagerly await the moment when they shall finally see the Christmas tree with their gifts. The anticipated moment arrives and the view of a decorated tree opens up before everyone. Under the tree little Clara finds a present from her godfather – a toy nutcracker, which easily cracks open nuts. In the disguise of a conjurer the mysterious godfather of Clara and Fritz arrives, and the children are enchanted by his ability to bring their toys to life and create entertainment for them... and this classic performance certainly provides entertainment. The choreographer and playwright of the fountain is Miloslav Janíček, and the ballet is performed by the Prague Theatre Ballet, directed by Jiří Pokorný. The production is enhanced by the film projection into the wall of water of the fountain.
