As a mother of boys, I have not had the opportunity to enjoy The Nutcracker as most families may have. My boys are all boy so attending a ballet has never been on their to do list. Of course, they would have gone if I bought tickets, and I am sure they would have enjoyed it! However, this year, I am not going to make any more excuses and say they can’t go because they won’t enjoy it!
The story of The Nutcracker has been around since 1892 and has been performed by many theatre companies across the globe. I am so excited to share this spellbinding experience with my children because Moscow’s Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is coming to town!
Families love Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker! It’s the ultimate holiday tradition and creates memories for a lifetime. The production includes over 200 romantic costumes and 10′ tall playful animal puppets; shimmering colorful, backdrops splashed with 3-D effects; life-sized Matrushka (Nesting) Dolls and a puppet show for shadowing the Nutcracker Story at the opening Christmas Party. During the battle with Nutcracker Prince and the 3-headed Rat King, a golden cannon shoots roses! In the Magical Snow Forest an authentic Russian style Troika Sleigh, known as the fastest sleigh in the world, is escorted by Father Christmas (Ded Moroz) and Snow Maiden (Snegurochka) on their way to Act II. The Great Russian Nutcracker is known for its dedication to world peace with Act II named the “Land of Peace and Harmony.” The first scene of Act II features a stunning “Dove of Peace” with a 20′ wingspan and danced by 2 dancers each with one feathered wing.
All ages feel the spirit of the season at Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker!
