CHRISTMAS TIME AT THE KRAKOW OPERA HOUSE - "THE NUTCRACKER" AND A CHRISTMAS CONCERT18 December 2020
The Artists of our Opera want to give the audience a moment of joy, emotion, breath from everyday life and the unique mood that Christmas time brings. So they prepared a special Christmas repertoire.
December 20 at 12:00 pm, there will be a performance of "The Nutcracker" - one of the most famous classical ballets. It tells the story of a girl who, thanks to a Christmas toy, a nutcracker, wanders through a fairy-tale wonderland, where everything is possible, like in a dream...
The author of the staging presented in our theatre is Emil Wesołowski, an outstanding Polish choreographer. Marek Grabowski's painting scenery leads the viewer through fairy-tale worlds. Fabulous, fancy costumes were designed by Maria Balcerek.
