Partner - The New Nutcracker
Written in 1816 by E.T.A Hoffman, The Nutcracker takes us on a journey with the young Marie on Christmas Eve. When Marie falls asleep after a party at her home, she dreams herself into a fantastic world! Or is it a dream? In the fantasy world, toys become larger than life, and her beloved Nutcracker, Culkin, comes to life and defends her from the Mouse King. After saving her life, Culkin turns into a Prince.
This classic tale has been told in a variety of mediums. The ballet is arguably the greatest platform to watch the fairytale unfold.
In 2012, the imagination of Artistic Director and CEO Victoria Morgan boldly revamped the classic tale to create The New Nutcracker.
The Nutcracker BowTie was designed with both versions of the masterpiece in mind.
