Ballet: The Nutcracker

November, 25

Queen Margrethe invited the entire family to Tivoli to see Nøddeknækkeren (The Nutcracker). The Queen herself has designed the scenography and all the costumes for the ballet.

The Nutcracker...
... is a two-act ballet which original is choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. The story comes from The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by E. T. A. Hoffmann. I had premiere in St. Petersburg, 1892 at the Mariinsky Theatre.

With her husband and children, Mary attended The Nutcracker ballet dressed in a new (?) light blue jacket. This jacket matched perfectly her mother-in-laws blue jewellery. As a mother you need a practical handbag, Mary's is differently this one she wore at the ballet - the black Bottega Veneta bag. On her feet she wore a pair of black boots.
