Seeing Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is a Christmas tradition for families since the first North American tour in 1993! The 2017 tour runs from November 6 to December 30 in over 100 U.S. and Canadian cities.

Welcome to the annual North American tour of Moscow Ballet’s spectacular Great Russian Nutcracker! Bring your whole family to the party at Mayor Stahlbaum’s home on Christmas Eve. Join in the fun as magical Uncle Drosselmeyer shares his latest imaginative dolls, the party children dance and more! Kissy Doll shines in her candy-ribbon tutu as she teeters on tippy toes to the delight of all the guests. Harlequinn Doll amazes as he vaults, spins and thrills with his acrobatic moves. And the Moor Dolls astonish all when they appear like magic out of the 5 foot tall Nesting Dolls that Uncle Drosselmeyer whipped up out of thin air.Consistently praised by the press, “Bravura expertise” Los Angeles Times and “Brimful with feeling” New York Times, all ages love Moscow Ballet’s opening of Act II with the stunning Dove of Peace. Two dancers, each wearing a white feathered wing that is 10 feet long, create one huge bird with a 20-foot wingspan right before the eyes of all. Russian folk legends Father Christmas (Ded Moroz) and Snow Maiden (Snegurochka) are exclusive to Moscow Ballet as is the Land of Peace and Harmony.Performed to Tchaikovsky’s complete score, Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker features falling snow, a Christmas tree that grows to five stories tall, silly 10 foot tall dancing puppets and enough holiday spirit to fill Santa’s bag of gifts! Be sure to see the best Russian dancers perform jaw-dropping moves and bring Christmas to life at Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker!
