„Pociťuji plnou neschopnost hudebně vyjádřit horu cukrovinek,“ napsal svému bratru Modestovi Petr Iljič Čajkovskij. Důvod? Slavný ruský hudební skladatel si v jednom okamžiku nevěděl rady s divadelní baletní pohádkovou inscenací Louskáček.
I’m going to the theatre!
I’m going there with my lovely friend to see the Nutcracker.
I’m very excited because I LOVE the smell of theatre. The magic in the air. The art, the fairy tale, the red seats, lights, my dressy and the special-evening ceremony.
We’re going to the National Moravian-Silesian Theatre which is the biggest and oldest professional theatre in the Moravian-Silesian region of the Czech Republic.
The theatre has four artistic companies – opera, drama, ballet and operetta/musical, which regularly perform on two theatre scenes – the Antonín Dvořák Theatre (you can see in the pictures) and the Jiří Myron Theatre. The National Moravian-Silesian Theatre
There are 517 seats in the Antonín Dvořák Theatre and 623 seats in the Jiří Myron Thatre. We’re going to the Antonín Dvořák Theatre which is named after a Czech composer famous for his New World Symphony, the American String Quartet and/or the opera Rusalka.
About the Art at the Theatre
The building of the Antonín Dvořák Theatre was designed in the Baroque Revival architectural style by a Viennese architect Alexander Graf. An artistic rendering of the interior of the building was the work of the Viennese sculpture company Johann Bock & Son. The author of the ceiling painting in the auditorium is another Viennese artist – Eduard Veith.
The theatre presents 16-19 premieres per year and plays almost 500 performances. The National Moravian-Silesian Theatre organises the festival of drama theatres OST-RA-VAR and also the event European Opera Days in Ostrava. The National Moravian-Silesian Theatre
The Nutcracker is played all around the Czech Republic. Here you can see the official teaser of the theatre performance from Ostrava.
Have a lovely Advent!

It is played all around the Czech Republic every Christmas.
But I’m going to see it for the first time!
About the Nutcracker – I love the story. I hope I’ll find some X-mas decorations with the Nutcracker in Wien! (I’m going there to visit Christmas markets this Saturday.) I already know that parents looked for the origin story (book) for me, and they want to put it under the Christmas tree. Gasp! And last weekend I found something very special on Amazon. So, I decided to buy it. It is The Nutcracker Ballet: A Book, Theater, and Paper Doll Fold-out Play Set.
It’s cool. A book, theater and paper dolls. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE IT!!!
I think that me and my boyfriend already have some pretty cool stuff for kids!!! Lots of amazing books, in particular. :)
