Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker celebrates 20 years touring North America and overflows with holiday delight! See a cast of 40 astounding dancers in the classic Christmas story with unique Russian zest.
Since 1993, the Great Russian Nutcracker has been a favorite for families and press alike: "Whimsical, charming, vibrant classical style,” says The New York Times; and “Sheer splendor and elegant dancing” adds The Baltimore Sun. Marvel at the spectacular new “Dove of Peace," where two dancers become one stunning bird, a Christmas tree that grows to 7 stories tall, falling snow, towering silk puppets, 200 lavish costumes, and nine hand-painted backdrops all set to Tchaikovsky’s complete score. Great Russian Nutcracker - 20 years of acclaim, 20 years of soaring holiday spirit.
