Alexandra Dariescu: The Nutcracker and I


A pianist, a ballerina, state-of-the-art animation and digital effects. This is The Nutcracker for the 21st century…

In this innovative 50-minute performance based on the magical story, RNCM alumna Alexandra Dariescu inspires the audience by telling her own story as Clara: from little girl to concert pianist and invites us to tap into our own imaginations.

Tchaikovsky’s enchanting ballet music features throughout, including such favourites as Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Arabian Dance and Pas de Deaux in 15 arrangements by composers such as Mikhail Pletnev, Stepan Esipoff, Percy Grainger and Gavin Sutherland.
