The Nutcracker and I The Nutcracker and I

​The Nutcracker and I at Dubai Opera

Be enthralled by Tchaikovsky’s beloved ballet music including favourites such as Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Arabian Dance, Chinese Dance, Pas de Deux, and the Flower Waltz, in this unusual multimedia interpretation of the well-loved tale.

Pianist Alexandra Dariescu brings her innovative performance of "The Nutcracker and I" to the Dubai Opera stage this December for a festive family treat. With a grand piano on stage, played by Dariescu, and a ballerina behind a transparent gauze screen, this new take on The Nutcracker is brought to life with hand-drawn digital animations projected onto the gauze that follow the music and engage live with the pianist and ballerina as they ‘dance’ across the screen. The incredible fusion of reality and technology will leave you feeling as though you are actually part of the story.
