Pyotr Tchaikovsky

Iolanta and the Nutcracker

Иоланта и Щелкунчик

When Tchaikovsky premiered his famous ballet The Nutcracker in Saint Petersburg in 1892, it was presented as a double bill, as standard at the time, together with the opera Iolanta. The Volksoper Wien, being part home to the famous Wiener Staatsballett, under the helm of the new music director Omer Meir Wellber decided to present both works again in one evening, but not as two separate pieces, but by fusing the two works into one.
