Overview
Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker" is a harbinger of the holidays - one of the most beloved classical music masterpieces of all time. From the whimsy of the "Waltz of the Flowers" to the twinkly magic of the "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy," no Christmas celebration would be complete without a visit from the Nutcracker. This performance of the ballet features orchestration from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as conducted by Yuri Simonov, a veteran conductor who studied at the illustrious Leningrad Conservatoire and has spent the past several decades leading orchestras around the world in glorious song. Besides a performance of "Nutcracker" highlights, this program also includes highlights of Tchaikovsky's other famous ballet - "Swan Lake." Both offer beautiful renditions of the source material, certain to be a treasure for the holiday and beyond.

Item Details
Tchaikovsky’s popular Christmas ballet, presented by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Yuri Simonov. Tchaikovsky was a brilliant and resourceful orchestrator, and probably the greatest writer of ballet music the world has ever known. He wrote the music for The Nutcracker during 1891–92 to a scenario by Marius Petipa. The ballet was first performed in December 1892 at the Maryinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg. Tchaikovsky’s first full-length ballet, Swan Lake, which he worked on in 1875–76 following a scenario by Vladimir Begichev and Vasily Geltzer, was first performed at the Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow in March 1877.

Yuri Simonov studied at the Leningrad Conservatoire with Rabinovich, and assisted Mravinksy at the Leningrad Conservatoire conducting The Mermaid by Dargomizhsky. Following first prize in the 1968 Saint Cecilia Conductors Competition in Rome, he was invited to make his debut at the Bolshoi Opera (Aida) in 1969 and was almost immediately appointed Chief Conductor—the youngest and longest serving in history. In recent years, Simonov has appeared with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the Warsaw National Philharmonic. In 2004–05 he made his debuts with the Budapest Festival Orchestra and led the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra on tours to the US, Japan, and the Czech Republic. He has toured Spain, the UK, and Korea and conducted a new production of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg for the Hungarian Opera House, Budapest. In 2006–07 he led the Moscow Philharmonic on tours to Japan and Germany, and conducted a five-performance-cycle of Queen of Spades with the Budapest Opera.
