WITH THE MONTE-CARLO PHILHARMONIQUE ORCHESTRA
Jean-Christophe Maillot has finally capitulated... "The Nutcracker" will indeed return to Monaco after an absence of thirteen years and passionate appeals from the public. But make no mistake; it is a completely revamped ballet that will be presented this winter at the Grimaldi Forum.
Recounting a young girl's dreams that become real through magic, "CASSE-NOISETTE COMPAGNIE" reflects Jean-Christophe Maillot's personal experience in the Principality 20 years ago. The Choreographer-Director of the Ballets de Monte-Carlo has created a world where anything becomes possible and where dance can overcome even the most irreconcilable differences.
The iconic characters created by Jean-Christophe Maillot throughout his career permeate this piece, where the scenery riddled with tricks is used to open the choreographer's trunk and conjure up his best friends and darkest demons on stage.
