Moscow Ballet’s “Great Russian Nutcracker” returns to the Creative Arts Center on its 25th Anniversary Tour. Known for its award-winning principal dancers, lavish costumes and exquisite artistry, the Moscow Ballet promises audiences of all ages a magical celebration of the holiday season. Forty classically-trained dancers will deliver an unforgettable performance complete with hand-painted sets, a 60-foot “growing” Christmas tree and the stunning Dove of Peace — all set to Tchaikovsky’s famous score. Critics agree, “Whimsical and imaginative storytelling blend with the richness of Russian classical dance to make the ‘Great Russian Nutcracker’ a performance not to be missed!” This show is always a sell-out so get be sure to get your tickets early.
