Royal Opera House Screenings: The Nutcracker
22 January 19:00 - Sky Lounge

**Please note that this is not a live performance, but screening of the official recording of Royal Opera House performance.


The Royal Opera House screenings of Zorlu PSM will continue with The Nutcracker, one of the most iconic ballets of all time. The Royal Opera House performance of The Nutcracker will be screened in Zorlu PSM on 22nd of January!

The two-act ballet was choreopraphed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's world-renowned composition and libretto adapted from Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffman's short story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The Nutcracker made its premiere in St. Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre on December 18th 1892, gaining worldwide fame with Tchaikovsky's suite which featured an exceptional use of the celesta. It has been performed in countless venues around the world with various interpretations, enabling major American ballet companies to gain 40 percent of their annual ticket revenue from the performances.

With many memorable pieces such as "Trepak", "Waltz of the Flowers and March" and "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy", the ballet featured harmonies that were ahead of its time and were considered as inventions. The character of the Sugar Plum Fairy was identified with the tender melodies from the celesta, the instrument Tchaikovsky had discovered in Paris.

The Royal Opera House production of The Nutcracker features the classic production of Peter Wright for The Royal Ballet. With Julia Trevelyan Oman's designs and Tchaikovsky's iconic score, The Nutcracker becomes an irreplaceable part of the holiday season, merging with the Christmas spirit of the 19th century.
