Teatro Argentino de La Plata presents the classical ballet "The Nutcracker", with music by Piotr I. Tchaikovsky and choreography by Iñaki Urlezaga, with the participation of the ballet directed by Cristina Delmagro and the Orchestra of Teatro Argentino, conducted by Esteban Gantzer.
"The Nutcracker" is a Christmas tale for the whole family, with music composed in 1890 by Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky, and with original choreography by Lev Ivanov. The libretto, by Marcus Petipa, comes from the adaptation of a tale of Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann by Alejandro Dumas. The ballet, opened in December 5, 1892 at Saint Petersburg´s Mariinsky Theater, became the most represented piece for the Christmas season.
The argument tells the story about the Christmas eve and the party that the family Stahlbaum is preparing. The kids, Clara and Fritz, await anxiously for the guests and the Christmas gifts. Most of all, they await for their beloved godfather, Drosselmeyer, who, among other things, gives little Clara a Nutcracker with the shape of a soldier. This toy will become a main character of the story, thanks to the imagination of the kids, taking part in their wonderful adventures.
