Set against Valentin Fedorov's spectacular hand-painted backdrops and life-sized dancing puppets, the Great Russian Nutcracker delights audiences with a visual tapestry rich in detail and whimsy.  It is especially distinctive for its unique setting of Act II in the “Land of Peace and Harmony” and for the introduction of a new character, a Christmas Dove.  New this year is a fantasy clock with wings of an owl that cast a shadow over the battle between the Soldiers and the Mice. 

Praised for exquisite dancing and gorgeous costumes, the Great Russian Nutcracker is directed by Ballet Master Vladimir Troschenko.  Mr. Troschenko  He is an honors graduate of the Bolshoi and Kirov academies.
Gold Medalist Cristina Terentieva stars as Masha partnered by Alexei Terentiev as the Nutcracker Prince.  Ms. Terentieva won the Gold Medal at the prestigious Varna International Ballet Competition in 2008. 
Moscow Ballet features top graduates of Perm, Vaganova, Moscow State Academic Choreographic and Kiev schools.  Acclaimed for exquisite dancing and gorgeous costumes, critics rave that Anatoli Emelianov’s Great Russian Nutcracker is “flawless,” “breathtaking,” and “dazzling.”  Whimsical and imaginative storytelling blend with the richness of Russian classical ballet to make the Great Russian Nutcracker a memorable holiday treat for everyone.
