Choreographical performance: “Casse-Noisette Compagnie”
December 28, 2021 - January 5, 2022€12 – €21
Choreographical performance: Jean-Christophe Maillot’s “Casse-Noisette Compagnie” by La Compagnie des Ballets de Monte-Carlo and the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Kazuki Yamada from Tuesday 28 to Friday 31 December 2021, at 7.30 pm, Sunday 2 January 2022, at 3 pm, and from Monday 3 to Wednesday 5 January 2022, at 7.30 pm in the Grimaldi Forum Monaco – Salle des Princes.
Jean-Christophe Maillot transposes this great classic’s story into the world of a dance company. The Stahlbaum family is still there, with Clara and Fritz, but the middle-class home has been replaced by a big dance studio, unimaginatively run by their parents. On the evening of Christmas, the Fairy Drosselmeyer brings an unexpected gift: a new choreographer bursting with imagination! After a period of internal struggle between the dancers, a fabulous voyage starts through winter snowflakes, arriving in the country of Confiturembourg: the : the Repertoire of the current Choreographer and Director of the Ballets de Monte-Carlo.
