Arts Center Saint-Michel is offering the Belgian kids, their moms and dads a special 2022 gift.

Our interactive ballet relates the story of a little girl Clara who was brave enough to stand by her friend, the valiant Nutcracker, in his fight against the Mouse King. The spectators will join the characters on their thrilling trip to the fairytale city of Candyburg. The city's dwellers will treat them to an awesome assortment of dances – Chocolate (Spanish Dance), Coffee (Arabian Dance), Tea (Chinese Dance), Trepak (Russian Dance). The night will culminate in the famous Dragee Fairy Variation, that Clara will dance for the Nutcracker, now transformed into the handsome Prince.
On the Christmas night, the good wizard Drosselmeyer makes little Masha see a dream that erases the borders between reality and the world of reveries. Masha's Christmas gift, a Nutcracker, turns both into her fearless champion in the fight against mice, and the charming prince who awakens the first romance in her heart.

Both the children and the adults will definitely enjoy their chance to get immersed in the atmosphere of a winter fairly tail. The Nutcracker by St. Petersburg Classical Ballet will provide an unforgettable New Year Eve experience for the whole family.
