Great Russian Nutcracker
Featuring spectacular sets and beautifully costumed Russian dancers, Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker is an annual treat for the whole family. Whimsical and imaginative storytelling blends with the richness of Russian classical dance to make the Great Russian Nutcracker a unique performance not to be missed!
Choreographer Emelianov has been praised by critics for its unique setting of Act II in the "Land of Peace and Harmony." To convey his message of peace, Emelianov incorporates an ethereal dove that escorts Masha and the Prince to a land where there is no war and suffering.
Set against Valentin Fedorov's spectacular scenic design, with dancing, larger-than-life puppets and the backdrop of unicorns, exotic birds and animals, Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker is a visual delight.
Moscow Ballet continues its commitment to making a difference in the arts. Local children in each market audition to appear with the Russian dancers on the tours. Last year, more than 6,000 children performed with Moscow Ballet as part of its educational outreach campaign, "Celebrating Children.The Arts Can Make a Difference."
The cast features luminaries of the Perm, Vaganova, Moscow State Academic Choreographic and Kiev schools. Chief Choreographer Anatoli Emelianov returns, with Ballet Masters Vladimir Troschenko and Andre Litvinov. Over the years, Moscow Ballet has increased the size and scope of its tour adding Cinderella, Swan Lake and Carmen to its schedule.
