In Solidarity with Ukraine

Experience NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet and give back this holiday season

In solidarity with the people of Ukraine, Talmi Entertainment announces the company’s flagship production, “Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker,” will be renamed “NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet.” Akiva Talmi, Founder and Producer of Talmi Entertainment, explains the spirit of the decision:

“Talmi Entertainment’s production has always had at its heart a message of international unity. It is more important than ever to speak out for peace and humanity with the tools we have: the international languages of dance and art and love. We reject the aggression against the Ukrainian people, and we will continue to use the artistic expression of this production to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to serving communities and bridging cultural divides.”

As the largest touring production of its kind, “NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet” features world-class dancers and acrobats, unique storytelling and visually stunning larger than life puppets that new and returning fans will love and recognize. New to the production are a flock of white doves and a cadre of delicate marionettes crafted by Master Puppeteers in the World UNESCO Heritage city of Prague, Czech Republic. These intricate new puppets accompany the well-known Dove of Peace Adagio and The Land of Peace and Harmony in Act II of the production.

The 2022 30th Anniversary Tour signifies rebirth and transcendence in many ways as it will also mark the return to touring and performing for live audiences after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The artists and dancers of “NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet” are excited to return to stages across America and to celebrate the season by bringing families together for this beloved holiday tradition. Tickets go on sale nationally starting April 11, be sure to look for your city then!

In solidarity with the artists and people of Ukraine, a portion of ticket proceeds will be donated to humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine, allowing the artists and patrons of “NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet” to use this 30th Anniversary Tour as a platform to directly help those in need.
