Photo of the Week – December 12, 2014

This week’s photo was taken during a 1965 production of Tchaïkovski’s Casse-noisette (The Nutcracker) at l’Opéra de Paris. The ballet was based on Alexandre Dumas’ adaptation of E. T. A. Hoffman’s 1816 novella The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, and premiered at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg on December 18, 1892. Tchaïkovski composed parts of the ballet in Rouen, France. Fifty years after this photo was taken, one can still see the iconic ballet at l’Opéra de Paris from the end of November until the end of December. For more information, visit their site.
