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.

West Valley Conservatory of Ballet , a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization,  strives to provide the community with  the best classical ballet training in the West Valley.  Faculty consists of classically trained individuals who are dedicated to inspiring all students to become not only accomplished dancers, but also to be healthy productive members of society. The Performance Company provides shows to local retirement communities, woman’s shelters, and local schools. In doing this we hope to provide an education to the arts and enrich the community culturally. Finally we provide scholarships to students who wish to attend summer intensive programs at well-known schools across the country. This gives the students an opportunity to experience the dance world at a larger scale.  The West Valley Conservatory of Ballet is supported in part by the Arizona Commission on the Arts, which receives support from the State of Arizona and the National Endowment for the Arts, the City of Surprise Community Outreach Program, West Valley Arts Council, and Toyota Proving Grounds.

About the Theater

Comerica Theatre was originally named the Dodge Theatre. It took 15 months to complete with a grand opening in April 2002. Harry Connick Jr. was the first to play the venue closely followed by four sold out shows with Jerry Seinfeld. Tradition continues with Moscow Ballet's great "Russian Nutcracker" every December with beautiful costumes and a cast direct from Russia.

From music to comedy to boxing, Comerica Theatre has been the home to many artists over the years as well as over 2M guests through its doors. Comerica Theatre will continue to entertain many more throughout the years.
