Moscow Ballet is pleased to bring Great Russian Nutcracker to Tucson on Monday, December 22nd. On tour in North America since 1993, the ballet is directed and choreographed by Stanislav Vlasov, former soloist with the Bolshoi Ballet.
Exclusive to the Great Russian Nutcracker is the stunning Dove of Peace, with 20ft wingspan, created by 2 dancers moving as one; Russian folk legends Father Christmas/Ded Moroz and Snow Maiden/Snegurochka who escort Masha and Nutcracker Prince to the Land of Peace and Harmony; life-sized Matrushka Dolls; and whimsical 10ft tall silk puppets. New in 2014 is an authentic Russian Christmas puppet play and Masha’s magical Toy Cabinet. Wearing intricately detailed costumes, many with shimmering Swarovski crystals, the award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet bring Tchaikovsky’s master score and the holiday season to life.
The run time of the show is two hours (which includes a 20-minute intermission). Recommended for ages 3 and up.
