The Gift of Christmas Tour Comes to Kamloops Sunday, November 10

Moscow Ballet brings the Gift of Christmas Tour to Kamloops with Great Russian Nutcracker performances bringing holiday magic to life and creating unforgettable memories for all ages. The company performs at Sagebrush Theatre on Sun., Nov. 10, 1 p.m. matinee and 5 p.m. 

Moscow Ballet makes Christmas gift giving easy with the holiday performance that delights all ages…from the life-sized Kissy Doll to the fierce, red-eyed Rat King; and the Russian Troika Sleigh bringing Masha through the Snow Forest to the Land of Peace and Harmony which is populated with 10 foot tall dancing puppets, exotic flying birds and dancing couples from the world’s five great heritages. 

Local Musical Wunderkind Eilidh Nicol Accompanied Moscow Ballet Principal Ballerina at Kamloops’ Sagebrush Theatre in 2018

Violinist Eilidh Nicol accompanied a prima ballerina in Saint-Saëns’ iconic “Dying Swan,” before a performance of the Great Russian Nutcracker on the 2018 Dove of Peace Tour at Kamloops’ Sagebrush Theatre. The performance was part of Moscow Ballet’s community engagement program “Musical Wunderkind.”

Eilidh Nicole has been playing the violin since the young age of four. When she was 12, she played her first concert with the Kamloops Brandenburg Orchestra and has been performing with the group since. Moscow Ballet “Musical Wunderkind,” who perform in many cities on the 2018 tour, are Concerto Competition winners and the next generation of professional musicians. Through this program they have the rare opportunity of accompanying a world-class Principal Ballerina live before their hometown audience.
