About the Event

“Whimsical ideas … charming tone … vibrant classical style.”
—The New York Times

Acclaimed for exquisite dancing and spectacular sets and costumes, the critics rave that Anatoly Emelianov’s Great Russian Nutcracker is “flawless,” “breathtaking,” and “dazzling.” The Moscow Ballet, celebrating its 16th US tour, is a pure classical ballet company that brings the grand tradition of a century of Russian ballet to audiences throughout the world. Whimsical and imaginative storytelling blend with the richness of Russian classical dance to make the Great Russian Nutcracker a memorable holiday treat for the entire family. Set against Valentin Fedorov’s spectacular scenic design, replete with dancing puppets and a backdrop of unicorns, exotic birds and animals, Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is the must-see production of 2008!
