The Nutcracker and the Mouse King 12+


The Zurich Ballet Artistic Director Christian Spuck recalls how having reviewed a great many versions of The Nutcracker he realized that he simply had to present his own interpretation of Tchaikovsky's music. He decided to abandon the usual retelling of the famous tale of Hoffmann, looked into the dark depths of the era of romanticism and emphasized the fantastic moments in the story of Princess Pirlipat.
