(Lexington, Ky.)November 4, 2014Moscow Ballet and University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra have choreographed a unique pas de deux, of sorts, for a three-city Kentucky tour of the Great Russian Nutcracker.  When Moscow Ballet’s 70-plus city tour stops in Paducah, Bowling Green and Lexington, the performances will be set to live music and played by student members of the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, a first in the Commonwealth. Fifty-five up-and-coming musicians and 40 internationally touring Moscow Ballet dancers will pair for the staging of this holiday classic and usher it to life. This is a pilot program for a national launch and couples for the first time a full student orchestra and internationally touring ballet company bringing audiences the full performance experience. 

“Performing Tchaikovsky's ballet, The Nutcracker, with a major professional ballet company will be a rare and special treat and challenge for our students.  Our students are very excited to meet and work with the Russian dancers, who are their same ages, and who, like our students, are deeply involved in being excellent in their art form,” said John Nardodillo, UK Symphony Orchestra’s conductor. 

“Moscow Ballet is a top-level educational experience for student dancers and it’s only fitting for us to invite musicians to participate,” said Akiva Talmi, CEO of Talmi Entertainment, Inc., producer of the US Tour. “This is such a treat for Kentucky audiences since full orchestras rarely travel with a touring production.”
