Experience all the wonder and beauty of Moscow Ballet's famed Great Russian Nutcracker, a dazzling holiday tradition that features gorgeous Swarovski crystal-laden costumes, life-sized matrushka dolls, 10-foot-tall silk puppets and a show-stopping "Dove of Peace" formation in which two dancers become one bird with a 20-foot wingspan. Interwoven into this year's production is a peek inside Masha's magical toy cabinet plus a charming display of authentic Russian Christmas puppetry. 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.

Quotes & Highlights
“Sizzling, drenched in passion and shamelessly entertaining… it explodes into mambo madness!” —San Francisco Chronicle
Frankie & Johnny brings the magic of mambo to the ballet. A bar room tragedy, a lover’s vengeance, romance gone wrong – it’s sexy, passionate and action-packed. The acclaimed Chants d’Auvergne, set to Joseph Canteloube’s French folksongs, provides a beautiful balance. And for the first time ever, Smuin Ballet presents the work of world-renowned choreographer Eliot Feld, with the West Coast premiere of Pacific Dances set to the enchanting music of Hawaiian slack key guitar.
