Music Tale




Nutcracker feat Sonic Solveig

Sonic Solveig realised that Tchaikovsky did not really like how simple Marius Petipa’s ballet scenario was. The composer admired Dumas’s version of Hoffmann’s story. He was disappointed and was convinced that this work would tarnish his reputation. He could not give up this project because he had already made a commitment in 1892. Reluctantly he started working on it. Sonic Solveig reveals for you the original story: how the Nutcracker became a nutcracker.

This app is featuring recordings by the London Symphony Orchestra directed by Antal Dorati.

Let’s live a transmedia experience…


Sonic Solveig began to think about its second app at the same time that its partner Les Clés de l’écoute started to work on the concert entitled The True Story of The Nutcracker and which was a special order from the Orchestre de Paris in November 2015. That show lasts 1 hour during which an actor and a dancer tell us the story of the Nutcracker and his adventures with Marie. Pictures from the application are projected on a screen behind the orchestra, and everything is poeticlally enlighted through an original lighting design. We aim to prepare the audience’s concert experience and to prolong that magical moment at home with the application!
