Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky

A fair in St. Petersburg: the Moor, the Ballerina and Petrushka are brought to life and begin a great adventure. Set to the music by Stravinsky, this fairytale conquered the world after its Paris premiere in 1911.

Just like Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s «Nutcracker», which was premiered in St Petersburg, hometown of Valery Gergiev and his Mariinsky Orchestra. Both are old Grafenegg hands and this year they will entertain us all day long.
