Ultimate ballet classic during the holidays

In her production, associate artistic director Rachel Beaujean gives her own interpretation of the ballet story, which is relevant to the times we live in today. At the same time, she lets the choreographic gems of Marius Petipa’s last great masterpiece sparkle like never before.
