The only lunch concert of the autumn season 2020, co-organised by the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and the Savoy Theatre on 1 December, is a rare and exciting Christmas treat: Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn’s jazz arrangement of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, The Nutcracker.

Audience safety at concerts >>

The Nutcracker counts among Tchaikovsky’s (1840–1893) most famous and acclaimed ballets. The piece draws upon E.T.A. Hoffman’s story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, set on Christmas night. The ballet was premiered in December 1892 at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, and in 1960 Ellington and Strayhorn arranged and recorded their own interpretation of the beloved piece. It is Ellington and Strayhorn’s version that the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra will now perform led by their Chief Conductor Ed Partyka.

Please note! The concert will be held in the Savoy Theatre at 12-13. The admission is free but it is recommendable to book a ticket in advance at the Savoy Theatre box office (0 €) or Lippupiste (1 € commission). Pre-tickets admit the audience until 11:50am, after which the remaining seats will be given to customers without a pre-booking. Please arrive early for the doors will be closed once the concert has started.

Duration 1 hour

Production: UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra & Savoy Theatre
