Moscow Ballet's GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER Thursday November 21, 2013 @ 7:30PM
Company of 40 perform Olympic-worthy leaps, lifts and pirouettes in each performance! To the delight of audiences of all ages, the artists bring humor, charm, athletic prowess and Russian flair to Tchaikovsky's timeless score. The ballet dramatizes the traditional story of Masha meeting her "Prince" and, exclusive to Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker, adds a tribute to world peace as well. The "Dove of Peace," for which 2 dancers become one bird with a 20 foot wingspan, escorts Masha and Price to "Land of Peace and Harmony" where ambassadors from Hispanic, African, Russian, Asian, and European heritages entertain and offer symbolic gifts in the form of playful silk puppets. The 2013 production includes 200 all new, hand-embellished costumes designed by Shakespearean expert Arthur Oliver and created in St Petersburg's oldest theatrical costume shop. Celebrate the beauty of the holidays and the best of Russian ballet in one grand production of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker!
