Metro Theater and Arts [Ekaterina] Bortiakova and [Artem] Belov, as Masha and Nutcracker Prince, dance with powerful vibrancy and emotion;” Cleveland Plain Dealer, “Bortiakova's technical prowess, especially in her footwork and turns, was…truly "great;" New York Times, “Good, precise dancing… well-trained cast;” Sioux City Journal, “Principal dancers “Alisa Voronova is a marvelously precise dancer…and the lithe Anatolie Ustimov is a spinning wonder” and “Great Russian Nutcracker…technically supreme dancing;” and Calgary Herald, “A truly excellent Snow Forest corps, a veritable highlight excelling in both synchrony and grace. Both male and female corps were outstanding all night.” The 2014 tour was the largest ever traveling to 80 cities in the U.S. and Canada, premiering in new cities Philadelphia and Miami, and performing in 15 of the top 20 DMAs. Tour revenue increased 20% for the 4th consecutive season.  

New in 2014 – Full orchestral accompaniment! Accompanying the internationally touring ballet company provides collegiate musicians (and audiences) with a rare, live ballet, performance experience. In 2014 the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, conducted by John Nardolillo, performed in Lexington, Bowling Green and Paducah, KY; Conductor Lee Mills and Concert Artists of Baltimore accompanied 3 performances at the Hippodrome in Baltimore; and Western Michigan University Orchestra, conducted by Bruce Uchimura, accompanied in Kalamazoo.

Dance with Us” and New Horizon’s programs directly impacted 4000 aspiring American student artists this season. Over 3600 children participated in the “Dance with Us” program in which local student dancers audition and perform side-by-side with professional company. The Cleveland Plain Dealer noted: “The inclusion of…local children in the ballet as part of Moscow Ballet's "Dance with Us" program was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for those dancers,” and the Calgary Herald, “The Calgary children who successfully auditioned…should be congratulated for their very skilled and enthusiastic participation. It really brought the idea home that the Great Russian Nutcracker is a wonderful chance for children to be in a full-length production and experience first-hand an authentic classical ballet from this uniquely Russian company of remarkable performers.” School children also benefit from New Horizon’s – A Children’s Program for Life in which specially trained Moscow Ballet ballerinas lead cultural immersion activities, Russian language and movement classes, and more.
