One of the most popular ballets in the world “Krcko Orascic” (The Nutcracker), by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, was performed in Banja Luka’s Sport hall “Borik”. In a crowded hall, the audience was delighted with this fairy-tale ballet on ice, traditionally performed in the world, in Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
“Krcko Orascic” is a story about a girl Klara who finds an unusual gift under a pine, a wooden walnut cracker – the “The Nutcracker” doll. Clara and him are experiencing wonderful moments in the fictive world.
The magic of this performance was demonstrated by a large number of artists of Russian State Ballet. The choreography has the signature of former ballet artist Konstantin Kostjukov, director of the National Theater of Belgrade.
