Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker Christmas Stream is Presented by The Fillmore Philadelphia

This year The Fillmore Philadelphia presents Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker streaming in Philly, directly to your living room! The original Fillmore is an iconic music venue, first opened in San Francisco in 1965. As a venue, The Fillmore was the focal point for the psychedelic music scene during the 1960s and '70s, helping to launch the careers of acts such as The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Santana, The Doors, Hot Tuna and many, many others which helped it grow into the legend it is today. We look forward to honoring the spirit of those historic performances because attending an event at The Fillmore offers not only an opportunity to listen to great live music, but to participate in a cultural and history-making music event shared between artists and fans.

The Fillmore Philadelphia is a spectacular, multi-faceted 25,000-square-foot venue conveniently located 2.5 miles from the Convention Center in the lively Fishtown district. Completely renovated and home to a beautiful and state-of the-art 2,500-capacity live music club, this versatile space is the perfect blend of rock and elegance, both classic and cutting edge. The venue also features a club within a club, the 450-capacity Foundry complete with its own bar, stage and top-of-the-line production located on the second floor of The Fillmore.

Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Philadelphia: The Met

In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at The Met Philadelphia, built in 1908 by opera impresario Oscar Hammerstein. The once– lavish Metropolitan Opera House is recognized internationally for its superb acoustics and once served as a recording hall for the Philadelphia Orchestra. Known for decades as “The Met”, its life as a Grand Old Opera House was followed by years of changing fortunes as a movie theater, a venue for basketball and boxing, a vocational school, a gospel concert hall and finally as home to the Church of the Holy Ghost. In all of its roles, the Met earned a level of popular affection that remains strong among residents of North Philadelphia and the city as a whole. The Met’s historic value is certified by the Philadelphia Historic Commission and by its listing on both the Pennsylvania State and National Registers of Historic Places. Despite its birth in another cultural era, The Met possesses both the city’s largest performance stage as well as its largest theatrical auditorium. The Met Philadelphia is currently undergoing a $56 million restoration in partnership with Live Nation, Eric Blumenfeld and Holy Ghost Headquarters to transform the historic theater into the crown jewel of North Broad Street’s renaissance.
