Announcing Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker coming to Naples, Fl at the Hayes Hall at Artis on November 28th & 29th at 7:30 PM

The one and only Moscow Ballet Great Russian Nutcracker will be in Naples, Fl at the Hayes Hall at Artis—Naples on November 28th & 29th at 7:30 PM. All ages are invited to celebrate Christmas with the Moscow Ballet company of almost 40 ballerinas and danseurs on their 25th Anniversary Tour of North America in 2017. Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is known for its award-winning Principal Dancers, lavish costumes in the style of the Victorian era, many backdrops created by “La La Land’ Set Concept designer Carl Sprague, and its Russian focus including life-sized Matryoshka Dolls, Russian folk legends Ded Moroz (Father Christmas) and Snegurochka (Snow Maiden) and Troika Sleigh. Adults and children enjoy the special effects of the flapping winged owl on the Grandfather clock, the growing 50 ft tall Christmas Tree, the Dove of Peace with a 20ft wingspan, and of course, the leaps, spins, and extraordinary moves of the company all performed to Tchaikovsky’s complete and incomparable score.

For twenty-five years Moscow Ballet has been consistently embraced by audiences and the press on their North American tours. “The Russians remain the principal keepers of the classical ballet tradition.” Eric Harrison, Arkansas Democrat Gazette, 2016.The Principal Dancers receive accolades, “Danced exquisitely by...Ekaterina Bortiakova, her technical prowess, especially in her footwork and turns, coupled with an endearing smile and girlish innocence, was…truly great," from Cleveland Plain Dealer 2014. Canada’s Stephan Bonfield, with the Calgary Herald, writes, “Great Russian Nutcracker …resplendently detailed, colourful production…technically supreme dancing, dazzling moments, authentically opulent and beautifully detailed costumes.” The New York Times Chief Dance Critic Alastair Macaulay, 2010, sums it up, “The Russian ballet style is expansive… elegantly generous, and so the experience is never meager.”

Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow Ballet's 2017 Naples Performances!

The Naples Academy of Ballet’s curriculum is directed at building the student’s strength, focus, creativity and love for dance by exploring and expanding their talents in order to develop physical, social and intellectual skills in the art of dance.

The school provides students with the traditions and discipline of the well-founded Russian Vaganova style of ballet, and offers professional dance instruction for all ages, regardless of whether a student’s goal is a career in dance or is purely recreational. A recreational dancer can gain discipline and self- confidence through the physical and mental accomplishments that come from positive dance instruction. The school’s professional instructors provide the more serious student with knowledge and preparation necessary for a career in dance. Ballet is a science of the body and an art of the mind. Training with the academy embraces the development of the dancer’s potential from the first day of class.
