The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

Reading-concert

Ages 8 and up - A tale by d’E.T.A. Hoffmann. Music by Tchaikovsky, adaptation by Luca Antignani. Text by Agnès Desarthe

On Christmas Eve, Clara receives a nutcracker from her strange godfather Drosselmeyer. The following night is most fantastic: the toys come to life, the Nutcracker confronts the King of mice and turns into a Prince. Without dance but through the intimacy of narration and drawing, old and young alike are invited to rediscover the beauty of Hoffmann’s tale and Tchaikovsky’s score.
