A Christmas ballet for all the family

Intro

Choose date

It wouldn't be Christmas without The Nutcracker, a ballet beloved by audiences the world over and danced by the Norwegian National Ballet since 1965.
In our version, the story is set in a Norwegian Christmas party in 1905. When Clara falls asleep under the Christmas tree, magical and mystical events start to unfold. Choreographer Kaloyan Boyadjiev and designer Jon Bausor are behind this exciting retelling of E. T. A. Hoffmann’s fairytale “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King”. With Tchaikovsky's popular music providing the backdrop, of course.

THE CHRISTMAS PARTY

We are in Christiania in 1905, and the diplomat family Stahlbaum are hosting a Christmas party. Among the guests are families from other countries and the mystical uncle Drosselmeyer. Clara is neither child nor adult, and feels left out at the grand party. She isn’t too keen on the toys, gifts or candies, but then Drosselmeyer gives her a fascinating nutcracker doll. During the party, Clara falls asleep, and magical things start to happen.

SNOWFLAKES AND CUPCAKES

The Nutcracker is a Christmas story where Clara gets lost in a dream world, the guests are transformed into rats and mice, and the nutcracker doll turns into a prince. Together they go to a dreamland where they dance with the presents from the foreign guests. You will see Russian and Spanish dancing, snowflakes and flowers, waffles and cupcakes—all in a colourful array of costumes. The performance features everyone from The Norwegian National Ballet and the Norwegian National Ballet School, and the Norwegian National Opera Orchestra plays Tchaikovsky's famous music.

Welcome to our dreamy ballet!
