The melodicity and dreaminess of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker earned the ballet an attribute 'childhood symphony'. Along with Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty it is the chef d’oeuvre of global ballet repertoire. The Nutcracker, as the best-known Christmas story, came on stage the SND eight years ago. The choreographers Rafael Avnikyan and Jozef Dolinský based their piece on the traditional version of the Vasili Vainonen choreography. In the eight years, The Nutcracker drew in thousands of spectators. The production features SND Ballet soloists and pupils form The Eva Jaczová Dance Conservatory.
