Ballet : The Nutcracker
The Grand Théâtre is reviving this traditional year-end entertainment.
On Christmas Eve, Clara receives a nutcracker, which her brother soon breaks. The young girl takes care of the beautiful toy with the face of a prince and then falls asleep with the toy by her side. And all at once the presents come to life. Leading the charge, the Nutcracker wins the battle against the Mouse King and whisks Clara away to the magical Land of Sweets, where exotic dances make for a dazzling celebration and magical dreams for the young girl.
