Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s ballet The Nutcracker is considered a symbol of life’s magical transformations and constant renewal. The story of how a wooden doll became an enchanted prince, who, with the help of a kind and selfless girl named Masha, defeated the evil Mouse King, is not just a beautiful fairytale. It’s a story of time’s passing and how a carefree childhood gives way to the bright sorrow of youth and the dreams of love and harmony.

The Nutcracker, staged by Nacho Duato, constituted the choreographer’s heartfelt farewell to Russia. «Together with French stage designer Jerome Kaplan, the Spanish choreographer «created an homage to the city that astounded him with its grandeur, its artists, and its audiences». The creators of the ballet chose to place the action in pre-revolutionary Russia, the Silver Age of Russian culture. After the premiere, critics noted that «Duato does not play with the classic, but tries in earnest to follow its style and strict canon, they admired the «free breathing plastique» and the «bright discoveries» of the choreographer who, in his work on the ballet, managed to harness «genuine inspiration».
