Russian Grand Ballet is proud to present the world’s most loved Christmas classic danced by Russia’s brightest ballet stars. Before there was Toy Story, there was The Nutcracker. Masha, one of ballet’s pluckiest heroines, journeys to a land where toys come to life. This magical fantasy, based on a fairy tale by Hoffman isn’t just for Christmas. Tchaikovsky’s lustrous music and the magnificent choreography of Marius Petipa have made this beloved story a must-see for children of all ages.
