Pjotr Iljitsch Tchaikovsky: Nutkracker suite, op. 71a
Swan lake suite, op. 20a
Reading from E.T.A. Hoffmann: “The Nutkracker and the Mouse King” etc.
Tchaikovsky brought the most colourful scores to Russian ballet dancers and the world, but why does he always tell such gloomy fairy tales in his compositions? Nora von Waldstätten reveals the secret behind “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King”, while Oksana Lyniv attunes the styriarte Festival Orchestra to Russian colourfulness. The focus of the Ukrainian conductor’s work is at the Bavarian State Opera as the assistant of Kirill Petrenko – at the epicenter of the new Russian conducting school.
