Notes on the performancesOpen 
The most Christmassy of the classics in the repertoire, The Nutcracker will light up the holidays with the charm of a dreamy fairy tale, which opens the new Ballet Season at La Scala with the harmonious grace of Tchaikovsky’s score; multi-faceted, versatile and rich in colour, the enchantment of the snowflakes, a poetic world of gentle nostalgia for childhood that transforms into the anxieties of adolescence.
