The Nutcracker is a one of the most popular ballets of the past century. The marvelous music by Tchaikovsky brings us a Christmas fairy tale spirit. Numerous ballet companies around the world stage this famous ballet every year during the winter months. Both children and adults look forward to attending a magical performance of The Nutcracker each holiday season and Harpa is proud to present this production in collaboration with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and St. Petersburgh Festival Ballet.

On Christmas Eve, Maria receives a beautiful Nutcracker as a present by the mysterious Drosselmeyer. Things take an unexpected turn when the toys under the Christmas tree come to life and the room is invaded by an army of uniformed mice. The Nutcracker transforms into a Prince and leads Maria to an enchanted fairytale land. Tchaikovsky’s music is some of the most memorable of all ballets, with a wealth of famous melodies.
