From this literary masterpiece, the ballet of the same name was created back in 1861 which, together with the other two pieces, fruit of the inspiration of the great composer Tchaikovsky, represents one of the highest achievements of classical ballet.

The Nutcracker, unlike the other two pieces, represents the bourgeois society of the late nineteenth century. Starting from this theme, the choreographer Raphael Bianco provides a contemporary reinterpretation by proposing an exploration of different dream worlds in which evanescent dreams, whimsical games and dreamlike fantasies, the result of young minds, take shape and substance.

The Nutcracker is a toy, a brave soldier who leads us to a world of cotton candy, colourful bon bon and fragrant candies, pervaded by perceptions coming from reality where however unconscious fears and torments are hiding and hiding.

During the evening a sweet tasting will be offered in collaboration with Venchi.
