The Nutcracker at Opera Bastille, Paris

See the new year in with a ballet masterpiece. Head to the Opera Bastille, where you can (re)discover The Nutcracker, a must-see fairytale/ballet that takes you on an enchanting journey of dreams, nightmares and magic.

Featuring the music of Tchaikovsky and the choreography of Nureyev, The Nutcracker has been one of the most popular ballets in the world since it premiered in St Petersburg in 1892. 

Despite the fact that Tchaikovsky didn't believe in its potential, more than a century later, this classic continues to attract ballet lovers and the curious-minded alike.

A wander down rue de la Roquette for a delicious cocktail or two after the show will round the evening off nicely.
