Deseos de Navidad

NutcrackerTivoliAugust Bournonville murió en 1879.
El Cascanueces, típico ballet navideño, se estrenó en 1892.
Cualquier mente mínimamente despierta deduciría que Bournonville nunca estuvo en este ballet.

Pues no. Wrong. Nanay.

En El Cascanueces que bailan en el Tívoli de Copenhague, Bournonville aparece en el escenario durante el primer acto, junto a Hans Christian Andersen y otros personajes ilustres de Dinamarca.

[En algunos países los coreógrafos son ciudadanos ilustres]

Los diseños de vestuario de esta producción son de S.M. la Reina Margarita de Dinamarca.

[En algunos países, los Reyes se involucran hasta ese punto con la danza]

Creo que ya tengo preparada mi carta a los Reyes Magos.

Feliz Navidad

HCAndersen&BournonvilleAugust Bournonville died in 1879.
The Nutcracker was premiered in 1892.
It looks that Bournonville never enjoyed this ballet.

Wrong. No.

In The Nutcracker performed at the Tivoli in Copenhaguen, Bournonville comes on stage during the first act, together with Hans Christian Andersen and other distinguished citizens from Denmark.

[Because in some countries, choreographers are distinguished citizens]

HM the Queen Margrethe of Denmark designed the costumes for this production.

[Because in some countries, Royalty is very involved in dance]

I think I have finished my letter to Santa.

Merry Christmas
