On Sunday, December 28, 170th performances of Pyotr Tchaikovsky's famous ballet The Nutcracker took place, which also introduced the so-called Nutcracker season, ie the holiday season, at the Estonian National Opera.

Even the most impossible dreams turn into a marvellous and tantalizing reality. Tchaikovsky’s beautiful music takes the viewer with Clara to the magical world of sweets, the Mouse King, toy soldiers, flying chefs, the giant Christmas tree, Christmas evening and dancing. Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker is one of the best known and most loved pieces of the composer, the music of which has inspired many choreographers to the tell the colourful Christmas fairytale of E. T. A. Hoffmann and Alexandre Dumas senior in the language of dance.

The magical world of Christmas is awaiting – tickets are now available!
