"Visually, the production is stunning."
McFarlin Auditorium at Southern Methodist University in Dallas opened in 1926 to address the school's need for a chapel that could accommodate the entire student body. The building's use has since evolved, and while it remains a venue for school-related and community activities, it has also hosted a variety of performances, productions, and speakers. Among them have been the American Ballet Theatre, Luciano Pavrotti, Martin Luther King Jr., and Yo-Yo Ma.
The Dallas Symphony will perform the music for Moscow Ballet's 2011 production of Great Russian Nutcracker—a perfect pairing for the beauty and grandeur that is Moscow Ballet.
Moscow Ballet Brings Great Russian Nutcracker to Dallas
Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker 2011 holiday performance premieres 2009 International Ballet Competition (IBC) award-winning dancer Karyna Shatkovskaya as Masha (aka Clara) and Vladimir Tkachenko, honor graduate of the Perm School, as the Nutcracker Prince, along with a corps of 40 Russian dancers. Set to Tchaikovsky’s famous score, the production features 200 lavish costumes, larger-than-life Russian puppets and 9 hand-painted backdrops that are embellished with 3-D effects…a must-see for the whole family! Now in its 19th year, Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker tour of two companies annually visits 60+ cities across North America.
