What: The Nutcracker
When: Friday, 9 December and Saturday, 10 December
Where: Rialto theatre, Limassol and Satiriko Theater, Αglantzia, Nicosia.
Based on the book The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A Hoffman, The Nutcracker Ballet tells the story of Masha, a young girl who is given a Nutcracker doll for Christmas. When Masha’s brother breaks the doll, the little girl cares for her wounded nutcracker, who later saves her from the evil Mouse King and is then transformed into a heroic prince. Together the prince and Masha travel to an enchanted island where celebrations, hosted by the Sugar Plum Fairy, are held in their honour.
Dancers will perform enchanting original choreography; accompanied by music from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky to capture the imagination and transport audiences to a magical world of brave toy soldiers and dancing snowflakes.
On December 9 the event will take place at Rialto theatre, Andrea Drousioti 19, Platia Iroon, Limassol and on December 10 the stars will take their performance to Satiriko Theater, Vladimiros Kafkarides Cultural Centre, 11-15 Vladimiros Kafkarides Street, Αglantzia, Nicosia.
