“The most anticipated event of this Christmas.”
Father Christmas




The most enchanting dance fairy tale, more lively than life itself. A fantastical performance by choreographer Jana Burkiewiczová. In the title role: Barbora Bočková. The performance is suitable for the whole family, children from 6 years of age.

The Nutcracker is perhaps the most famous Christmas ballet. How about we enjoy it to the most? And in our own way! Together we will enter the illusion of a story in which objects around us come to life, dolls fly, bears dance and a crazy orchestra plays Tchaikovsky. We will not interpret or modernize, but play. And the only thing that will interest us is the wonder of time spent together and the limitlessness of imagination. We’ll all become Clara. We will create Christmas.

The performance is presented by Burkicom with the support of grants from the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and the Prague City Hall.
