Moscow Ballet’s award-winning dancers bring the holiday season to life in St Louis, MO!


alt

Exclusive to the Great Russian Nutcracker is the stunning Dove of Peace, with 20ft wingspan, and created by 2 dancers moving as one; Russian folk legends Father Christmas/Ded Moroz and Snow Maiden/Snegurochka who escort Masha and Nutcracker Prince to the Land of Peace and Harmony; life-sized Matrushka Dolls; and whimsical 10ft tall silk puppets. New in 2014 is an authentic Russian Christmas puppet play and Masha’s magical Toy Cabinet. Wearing intricately detailed costumes, many with shimmering Swarovski crystals, the award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet bring Tchaikovsky’s master score and the holiday season to life!

 


Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow  Ballet's 2015 Performances!


alt

Moscow Ballet’s “Dance with Us” Audition Director Carolina Siscanu will be present to select 60 student dancers to perform side-by-side with the professional company of 40 Russian dancers. Students are cast in ancillary roles of Party Children, Mice, Snowflakes, Angels, and more. Applicants must be between 7 and 16 years old, have at least one year of ballet training, dress in dance attire and may bring Pointe shoes. The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. “The payoff at the end of the rehearsals is the opportunity to be part of Christmas magic, to dance under shimmering lights with award-winning Russian dancers against exquisite hand-painted sets. It’s great for the kids. They get to dance in a professional production,” affirms Margaret Engle of Fort Myers FL.

The Art of Dance and Classical Ballet dance studio has a rich history of educating dancers from beginners at a young age to dedicated performers in company classes to those who purely want to enjoy dance expression.  The studio offers a wide range of classes including Yap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Baton, Lyrical, Classical ballet, Tumbling, Musical Theater, Dance Team/Pom and Princess Pre-school.  There are both boys and girls in the classes and ages from 3 years to 63 years.  At this studio we learn to dance one step at a time!

The Peabody Opera House and its 3,500-seat main theater were completed in 1934 as part of the Municipal Auditorium complex that included the 9,300-seat Convention Hall that later became known as Kiel Auditorium. Construction on the Convention Hall was not completed until 1936. The Opera House features six to seven venues, including an ornate main theatre with approximately 3,500 seats and a two-story front lobby (constructed entirely of Tennessee and Ste. Genevieve marble), four small side theaters or halls (with a capacity of up to 700 seats each), an exposition hall, basement restaurant/bar space, offices, dressing rooms and other support spaces for the facility.

During its height of activity, the Opera House attracted the world's finest performers, including concert artists, Broadway shows, plays, dance companies, symphonies, blues, jazz, country-western, rock, grand opera and light opera. It also presented several Veiled Prophet balls, choral pageants, civic events and traveling exhibits.


Dec, 2014 - Great Russian Nutcracker

The performance went wonderfully. The parents & the student dancers thoroughly enjoyed it…a very smooth process. All of the Moscow Ballet staff have been a blessing, from Vanessa to the wardrobe, the photographer & backstage helpers. The company dancers were also lovely, gifted and professional in their application of their abilities and a pleasure to watch!
