Long Description: Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker tells the beloved Christmas story of the girl who falls in love with a Nutcracker Prince - with Russian flair. Praised by the NY Times as "thrilling and expansive," the 40 impeccably trained Russian dancers leap, spin and lunge as you have never seen before. Audiences love the Christmas party with magical toys, battles with an evil Mouse King and a journey through the glittering Snow Forrest. Unique to Moscow Ballet productions, Russian folk characters Father Christmas and the Snow Maiden escort Masha (Clara) to the Land of Peace and Harmony where she and the Nutcrakcer Prince are honored by emissaries from heritages the world over; Africian, Russian, Asian, European and Hispanic. Et to Pytor Tchaikovsky's famous score, Moscow Ballet's production featuares lavish costumes, nine hand-painted backdrops with 3-D ornamentation and fanciful, larger-than-life puppets designed by a Russian master. A must see show for everyone in the family this holiday season!
