Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the The Nutcracker: Clara's Journey show —scheduled from December 17 to 28— has been cancelled. Ticket holders will be reimbursed directly.

Unable to involve children under the age of twelve in the production this year, Les Grands Ballets presents a never seen before version of The Nutcracker for the 2021 holiday season.

In the first part, a brand new creation with a childlike innocence and joyous cheerfulness! Ivan Cavallari, artistic director of the company, lets his imagination run wild and offers The Enchanted Gift, a fairy tale for the whole family, set to the music of Heitor Villa-Lobos.

Christmas Eve finds Professor Christmas in his laboratory. This year he’d like to be able to offer children toys that they won’t get tired of in a hurry. Struck by an ingenious idea, he immediately sets to work and succeeds in creating…toys that come alive and perform! What follows is entertainment of every sort, featuring well-known characters from various ballets: Harlequin, for example, and Puss in Boots, the doll Coppelia and a number of others, who dance before his dazzled eyes.

In the second part of the program, discover the wonder and enchantment of the second act of The Nutcracker by Fernand Nault and Tchaikovsky with Clara's Journey. Let yourself be carried away to the sound of the “Flower Waltz” and the “Mirliton Dance”.

The Nutcracker has transformed into Prince Charming and takes Clara to the Kingdom of Sweets, where the little girl, along with the King of Sweets, discovers a world of happiness and fantasy.
