The Nutcracker - Schedule, Program & Tickets

The Nutcracker

Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker has been an essential part of the Opera's run-up to Christmas for decades. In memory of Vasili Vainonen and Gusztáv Oláh, we first presented for Christmas of 2015 a new buffed-up show that follows classical ballet traditions while still conforming to the requirements of 21st century dance and set design. Partnering with Tamás Sonymosi to choreograph a new fairy-tale ballet for the classical-music piece is a true Nutcracker specialist: the widely renowned Wayne Eagling. This is the first time in the life of the Hungarian National Ballet.
