Angelin Preljocaj’s contemporary presentation of Grimms’ classic fairytale is a musical and visual treat for Christmas Eve.

Its romantic choreography has a fluid style and features wonderfully realised acrobatics and elegant moments of pas-de-deux (danced duets), all set to Mahler’s symphonic music.

The piece received wide acclaim when it was premiered in 2008, praised for design as well as the choreography and music. The costume, provided by French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gautier, is as striking as the dance. Click here for more information.
