Christmas at Megaron-Athens Concert Hall with “The Nutcracker”


This Christmas “The Nutcracker” – the sensational dance performance of legendary Bolshoi choreographer Yuri Grigorovich – is coming to Megaron Athens Concert Hall on 20-30 December 2017 promising to amaze all, children and adults alike.

The production – a two act ballet based on Ε.Τ.Α. Hoffmann’s tale “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" and Tchaikovsky’s glorious music – aspires to be Athens’s most stunning Christmas performance featuring the Grigorovich Ballet Theatre of Russia, Simon Virsaladze’s mesmerizing sets and fabulous costumes, many visual effects as well as Bolshoi Theater’s brilliant soloists.

Throughout the second half of the 20th century Yuri Grigorovich’s name has been synonymous to the Bolshoi – Moscow’s greatest theater. He has been the theatre’s artistic director for 31 consecutive years (1964-1995) and continues until today to work unremittingly in his capacity as ballet master and choreographer. As Yury Grigorovich – one of the greatest living Russian classical ballet choreographers – turns 90 this year, some of the greatest theaters around the world are reviving his legendary productions. To commemorate his work Megaron Athens Concert Hall will be staging his historic choreography based on one of the most beautiful Christmas fairy tales.
