Casse-Noisette Compagnie Maillot


Jean-Christophe Maillot

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 The Stahlbaum family is still there, with Clara and Fritz, but the middle-class home has been replaced by a big dance studio, unimaginatively run by their parents.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 Repertoire of the current Choreographer and Director of the Ballets de Monte-Carlo.
