Quote from Unitel:
When Tchaikovsky premiered his famous ballet The Nutcracker
in Saint Petersburg 130 years ago, it was presented as a double
bill, as standard at the time, together with the opera Iolanta.
The Volksoper Wien, being part home to the famous Wiener
Staatsballett, under the helm of the new music director Omer
Meir Wellber decided to present both works again in one
evening, but not as two separate pieces, but by fusing the two
works into one. Iolanta is a blind princess. A famous doctor can
cure her, but only after she is being told about her blindness.
Her father doesn’t want to break that horrible news to her.
Lotte de Beer: “In her blindness Iolanta lives with a magical
imagination of everything that surrounds her. The Nutcracker
music and the dancers of the Wiener Staatsballett show us
Iolanta’s world perception by her inner eye. But there comes
a time in life, when you have to decide whether to remain a
blind princess or to see the world in all its imperfection.” This
production plays on the cutting edge of fantasy and reality,
of being a child and being a grown-up, of opera and dance.
In short: it’s a family-show to the core
