Looking for a great idea for summer birthdays? Remember the holiday party in the Great Russian Nutcracker with puppets and dancing toys? Here is a recipe to make a “Moscow Ballet style” party that is fun to create and to attend. Puppetry is a grand Russian tradition and Moscow Ballet Scenic designer Valentin Federov is one of the best in his field. He created the life-sized puppets in the Great Russian Nutcracker and you can create your own life-sized puppet too! Find step-by-step instructions and enter-to-win the “Princess Party” or “Valentin Bear Party” gifts for a very special summer party. Click for details, register by August 5.

Valentin Fedorov created Moscow Ballet’s dancing Unicorn, the three-headed Rat King and the balalaika playing Bear of Strength, a beloved symbol of Russia. He also created Uncle Drosselmeyer’s hand puppets and theater seen in Act I and the 9 fanciful backdrops embellished with 3-D effects. Called “the Russian Bear” himself by his colleagues, Fedorev is a protégée of legendary Valery Leventhal of the Bolshoi Ballet.
