“Knockout! Expansive! Elegantly generous!” — New York Times — “Kids were wide-eyed with delight!”
Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is a Christmas tradition and visual feast that creates lifelong memories for the whole family! The special 20th Anniversary production of Great Russian Nutcracker in 2012 overflows with a spectacular new "Dove of Peace," where 2 dancers become one stunning bird, inspired by the early works of Stanislov Vlasov, original choreographer and director of Moscow Ballet's inaugural Great Russian Nutcracker. The production also features a Christmas tree that grows to 7 stories tall; falling snow and Troika-styled sleigh escorted by Russian folk characters Ded Moroz (Father Christmas) and Snegurochka (Snow Maiden); towering hand-made silk puppets; 200 all new, lavish costumes; and 9 hand-painted backdrops, all set to Pyotr Tchaikovsky's complete Nutcracker Suite score.
