The Nutcracker

The Universal Ballet's Nutcracker, one of the most famous ballets in the world, is coming to Athens, Greece in preparation for Christmas on 24 November until 13 December at the Badminton Theatre. This fairytale ballet premiered in 1892 and has inspired dozens of revivals by distinguished choreographers and dancers. It has influenced pop culture and maintained a constant place in the repertoire of one of the most important classical dance groups in Asia, the Universal Ballet, which has performed on some of the greatest stages around the world.

The Universal Ballet will take us into a fairytale world that will come jumping out of gift boxes this Christmas in Athens, Greece. The strange wooden soldier made to crack walnuts turns into the most beloved toy, while the Mouse King, the Sugarplum Fairy, the Arabian and Chinese dancers, flowers and sweets all come to adorn little Clara's dream in one of the most popular ballets ever loved by young and old, as well as by fans of Tchaikovsky's exquisite musical score.

The experience and incomparable technique of the company's dancers has led critics to proclaim that, "Perfection is possible in art and we see it in the performance of the Universal Ballet" (El Mundo) and audiences to never want to leave the festival of colourful toys as the Christmas clock strikes midnight.

Don't miss The Nutcracker by the Universal Ballet from 24 November at the Badminton Theatre and start getting into the spirit of Christmas in Athens, Greece.
