This perennial favorite draws on E. T. A. Hoffmann's Christmas fantasy, in which a young girl finds herself caught up in a night of magical adventures. Tchaikovsky's well-known score, the exquisite choreography, and entrancing imagery combine to create one of the most popular ballets in the world. Called "a perfectly executed confection" by The Classical Source, the Royal Opera House staging features period costume and detailed sets evoking a lavish 19th-century holiday season. This Christmas 2009 performance marks the 25th anniversary of Peter Wright's Royal Opera House production, which he based on the 1892 Ivanov original.
