Opening our holiday show this year is a brand new creation full of childlike innocence and joyful cheerfulness! Ivan Cavallari, Les Grands Ballets' Artistic Director, let his imagination run wild in creating The Enchanted Gift, a fairy tale for the whole family, set to the music of Heitor Villa-Lobos.
Christmas Eve finds Professor Christmas in his laboratory. This year he’d like to offer children toys that they won’t tire of in a hurry. Struck by an ingenious idea, he sets to work and succeeds in creating… magical toys that come to life! The toys take turns entertaining the dazzled Professor in a flurry of performances featuring well-known characters from various ballets: Harlequin, Puss in Boots, the doll Coppelia and more!
In the show's second part, rediscover the wonder and enchantment of the second act of The Nutcracker by Fernand Nault and Tchaikovsky with Clara's Journey. Let yourself be carried away to the sound of the "Flower Waltz" and the "Mirliton Dance”.
The Nutcracker has transformed into a charming Prince and takes Clara to the Kingdom of Sweets where the little girl, along with the King of Sweets, discovers a world of happiness and fantasy. It is the most beloved holiday tale!
