Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker

Tuesday, December 4 • 7:30 p.m.
WVU Creative Arts Center

Moscow Ballet’s “Great Russian Nutcracker – Dove of Peace Tour” is the perfect way to start your holiday season.  Watch as 40 classically-trained dancers deliver an unforgettable performance set to Tchaikovsky’s complete score. Moscow Ballet’s unique two-person Dove of Peace character, with its breathtaking 20-feet wing span, takes Masha (Clara) on a worldwide journey in search of peace and harmony in the performance’s second act. Hand-painted sets, lavish costumes, Russian snow maidens and jubilant nesting dolls add wonderment to the experience that The New York Times says leaves “kids wide-eyed with delight!”
