An authentic Russian Christmas puppet play and Masha's magical toy cabinet are new for 2014 as the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker returns to New York's glorious Hammerstein Ballroom for the holiday season. All the wonder and beauty of this stunning production is back as well, with the gorgeous Swarovski crystal-laden costumes, life-sized matrushka dolls, 10-foot tall silk puppets and a special "Dove of Peace" formation, where two dancers become one bird with a 20-foot wingspan. This is your chance to see the award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet perform Olympic-worthy leaps, lifts and pirouettes as they tell the heartwarming tale of Masha meeting her prince.

Czech co-founders of the LaS Company, choreographer Kristina Lhotáková and director/sound designer Ladislav Soukup, create a unique documentary dance-theatre working with non-dancers, “real people,” as inspiration.
For the New York segment of The Name of the Game, a piece that explores the irrevocability of nature, they have assembled a corps of four young people, aged fifteen to twenty-five, who were cast in NYC and who then traveled to Prague to work with the LaS company. The youthful cast, growing up, changing every day, and literally leaping into their lives, embodies the unstoppable forward mechanism of nature, progress, and moments that will never come back. Yet the project seeks to reinvent the “unrepeatable” with aesthetic tools of rhythm, pictures, and movement.
In October, 2005 Lhotáková and Soukup opened “The Name of the Game – Queretaro” at the Encuentro del Cuerpo Festival in Mexico, with Mexican performers. Another version of “The Name of the Game” is currently being worked on in Prague. These three variations will be presented as a mini-festival in Prague in late 2007 at the Archa theatre.
