About the Event

Tchaikovsky's famous ballet 'The Nutcracker' will be performed at the Estonian National Opera in Tallinn.

Ben Stevenson’s wondrous stage production starts the Christmas month at the Estonian National Opera! Even the most impossible dreams turn into a marvellous and tantalizing reality. Tchaikovsky’s beautiful music takes you with Clara to the magical world of sweets, the Mouse King, toy soldiers, flying chefs, the giant Christmas tree, Christmas evening and dancing.

Ben Stevenson is to this day considered one of the most important shapers of the American ballet art. For almost thirty years, he has been the art director of the Houston Ballet and under his leadership the company has grown into an internationally acknowledged ballet theatre, and from the year 2003 he is the Artistic Director of the Texas Ballet. His stage productions have earned several renowned awards and praise from the critics, and have been staged at Opéra de Paris, Canadian National Ballet, La Scala, Bavarian State Opera, London City Ballet, etc.
