Enter here to win tickets for Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker!
The ultimate holiday tradition for the youngest to seniors in the family, the Great Russian Nutcracker creates holiday memories that last a lifetime. Moscow Ballet’s company of almost 40 dancers is the only internationally touring ballet group to perform to critical acclaim in over 75 North American cities annually. The renowned, award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet thrill audiences with their expertise, dramatic expression, and stunning leaps, turns, and drops. The production is known for its dedication to world peace, featuring a cannon that shoots roses and a stunning opening act (“Dove of Peace”) with a 20’ wingspan.
All ages feel the spirit of the season at Great Russian Nutcracker performances through the romantic costumes, shimmering backdrops with authentic splashes of Russian history, and fanciful effects such as; life-sized Matrushka (Nesting) Dolls; a 3-headed Rat King, and a trip on a Troika Sleigh through the magical Snow Forest (with falling snow) escorted by Father Christmas and Snow Maiden.
In addition, the Tucson show will include a pre-curtain performance by local cello prodigy Jacob Lee. Jacob will accompany Moscow Ballet’s principal ballerina in a performance of the Dying Swan.
