Pyotr Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker op. 71 (concert version)
The darker original version of the story underlying Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet Nutcracker is brought to life by the Turku Philharmonic and the Aura of Puppets. In the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, a girl named Clara has a wonderful dream on Christmas Eve, featuring giant mice and gingerbread soldiers, and also a living nutcracker. Staged here through the means of contemporary puppet theatre, this production is visually gorgeous and focuses on themes relevant for viewers of all ages, besides creating a new kind of stage aesthetic by combining various art forms.
The length of the concert is approx. 1 h, no intermission.
The daytime concerts form part of the ‘Taidetestaajat’ (Arts testers) project.
