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.
