Arts & Culture: Though it may be summer, the holiday season will be here before we know it. The thought of holiday shopping may be daunting, but the smell of pine and the gathering of loved ones fill us with warm fuzziness. And with the arrival of sleigh bells, menorahs, and eggnog, comes the yearly production of the Nutcracker.
Whether your memories include attending the ballet as a child, or discovering the enchantment in adulthood, one thing is certain; the Nutcracker is a timeless masterpiece enjoyed generation after generation.
The world-renowned Moscow Ballet will present its Great Russian Nutcracker in over 70 cities during the holiday season. Celebrating its 15th anniversary, the all-Russian cast will deliver a spectacle of beautifully choreographed dance.
Artistic Director and principal dancer, Anatoli Emelianov, uses a fresh approach to tell the beloved story of the Russian Nutcracker. Emelianov's Act II is set in the unique "Land of Peace and Harmony" where a new-to-the-script ethereal dove leads Masha and the Nutcracker Prince to a land where there are no wars or suffering, where all creatures live in harmony. Advance tickets are now available online.
