Great Russian Nutcracker

The one and only Moscow Ballet Great Russian Nutcracker returns to the Fox Theatre on Sunday, December 17 for three shows at 12 p.m., 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.; part of the Fifth Third Bank Fox Theatre Series. All ages are invited to celebrate Christmas with the Moscow Ballet company of almost 40 ballerinas and dancers on their 25th Anniversary Tour of North America in 2017.

Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is known for its award-winning Principal Dancers, lavish costumes in the style of the Victorian era, many backdrops created by “La La Land” Set Concept designer Carl Sprague, and its Russian focus including life-sized Matryoshka Dolls, Russian folk legends Ded Moroz (Father Christmas) and Snegurochka (Snow Maiden) and Troika Sleigh. Adults and children enjoy the special effects of the flapping winged owl on the Grandfather clock, the growing 50 ft tall Christmas Tree, the Dove of Peace with a 20 ft wingspan, and of course, the leaps, spins, and extraordinary moves of the company all performed to Tchaikovsky’s complete and incomparable score.
