Mark your calendars and watch the Imperial Russian Ballet perform The Nutcracker on 18th September at The Events Centre Caloundra.
Following their sell-out 2015 performances of Swan Lake, the Imperial Russian Ballet Company return to Australia to perform The Nutcracker.
The Nutcracker is famous for Tchaikovsky’s music. The genius of Tchaikovsky created one of the most recognisable and enduring music scores ever written.
The Nutcracker is a two-act ballet, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The libretto is adapted from E.T.A. Hoffmann's story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, by way of Alexander Dumas' adapted story 'The Nutcracker'. It was given its première at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg on Sunday, December 18, 1892, on a double-bill with Tchaikovsky's opera Iolanta.
The complete Nutcracker has enjoyed enormous popularity since the late 1960s, and is now performed by countless ballet companies.
Tchaikovsky's score has become one of his most famous compositions, in particular the pieces featured in the suite.
The illustrious cast of the Imperial Russian Ballet Company enjoy performing The Nutcracker more than any other ballet from their extensive repertoire, especially when they are joined by children from local ballet schools in the cities that they perform in around the world.
The Imperial Russian Ballet Company was formed in 1994 by the Bolshoi Theatre soloist, Gediminas Taranda. The Imperial Russian Ballet Company comprises 40 dancers from the major ballet schools of Russia.
