The Nutcracker, performed by the Saint-Petersburg Tchaikovsky Ballet Theatre, is coming to Dubai Opera in December.
The classic Christmas story ballet follows young Clara on a magical adventure as her beloved Nutcracker comes to life, battles the mouse king, waltzes her through the swirling flowers of snow, and joins the Sugar Plum Fairy to reign again in his kingdom.
Accompanied by a live orchestra, the show comes to Dubai for four nights - December 4 to 7.
Dubai Opera’s chief executive, Jasper Hope, said: "The festival season never truly begins until the Nutcracker opens - I am delighted we’re able to announce this family-friendly ballet for the first week of December for audiences in Dubai to enjoy the fabulous music of Tchaikovsky and the beauty of live ballet from this wonderful St. Petersburg company.”
Tickets for The Nutcracker start from AED250 and are on sale at www.dubaiopera.com with a special early-bird discount of 20% on all seating categories (except boxes) until April 14.For all the latest art news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
