Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker creates lifelong memories
Nothing says Christmas more than Moscow Ballet’s perennial favorite Great Russian Nutcracker. Three tours of 36 professional Russian dancers travel throughout the United States and Canada making stops at more than 140 cities to bring the 2019 Gift of Christmas to audiences everywhere.
The universal appeal attracts patrons of all ages and backgrounds. Gifting a spouse, sister, brother, or friend with a special evening at a Moscow Ballet performance is sure to create or continue a special holiday tradition.
There is still time to enjoy the spectacular sets and props that have made the Great Russian Nutcracker a sight to behold including this year’s new intricately carved puppet theater, a colorful peacock with a tail that fans out to eight feet-wide, a canon that shoots rose petals, giant puppets and birds, and, of course, the beauty of Tchaikovsky’s timeless score as the ballerinas and danseurs bring it to life through the ballet.
Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year from all of us at Moscow Ballet. We thank you for your continued appreciation of the fabulous artistry and dedicated passion of the dancers as they help you create lifetime memories with your families.
While at the performance, remember to stop by the merchandise table which features a wide variety of Moscow Ballet souvenirs, including branded glass ornaments and mugs, Souvenir books with glossy images of the entire performance, handmade nutcrackers featuring Moscow Ballet characters, Nesting or “Matryshka” Dolls, and branded apparel to remind you of your special night out!
