The fairy tale by E. T. A. Hoffmann "Nutcracker and Mouse King" is staged and choreographed after Juri Grigorovich. This traditional, beautifully staged Christmas fairy tale will be danced by the ensemble of the Europaballett as well as the eleven of the Ballet Academy St. Pölten. This Tchaikovsky classic takes up the psychological aspects of E. T. A. Hoffmann's material, which blurs the boundaries between dream and reality. "The Nutcracker", probably one of the most performed works in ballet literature, which has become a key experience for generations of ballet-goers.
