Audition Director Mariia Skoruk  will be in town for several days to lead the audition and to rehearse the selected student dancers. “The true highlight of the night was seeing all the Calgary children who... should be congratulated for their very skilled and enthusiastic participation. It really brought the idea home that the Great Russian Nutcracker is a wonderful chance for children to be in a full-length production and experience first-hand an authentic classical ballet from this uniquely Russian company of remarkable performers,” Calgary Herald, 2014.

Award winning teen musicians open Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker

altYouth “Musical Wunderkind” musicians accompany Moscow Ballet principal ballerinas in Saint Saen’s “Dying Swan” from Carnival of the Animals, now commonly known as the influence for Odette’s movements in Swan Lake, in cities on the national tour. The Wunderkind, each in their respective cities, rehearse with the principal ballerina and open the performance in a duo of string player and ballerina to the delight of audiences.

Moscow Ballet’s cross discipline program, “Musical Wunderkind,” is a salute to talented young Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition winners across the country and is an unprecedented opportunity for them. The live performance experience develops young musicians’ interpretation skills in a way practice cannot. Moscow Ballet continues to develop its mission to provide art enrichment for the local communities in which it performs.

Moscow Ballet Wunderkind Jenny Lee, 17, has been playing the cello since the age of nine.  For the past seven years, she has been involved with the Albuquerque Youth Symphony Program, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing students in the Albuquerque area with a first rate musical education experience.  As a junior at the Albuquerque Academy, Jenny has performed in the premier high-school ensemble, the Youth Symphony, for the past three years.  She has also participated in the New Mexico All-State Symphonic Orchestra since her freshman year.  Jenny has had the honor of performing in a number of top venues including Carnegie Hall and the Teatro Nacional in Costa Rica.  In the future, Jenny plans to study music at the collegiate level.
