A masterpiece of classical dance, and a holiday favorite, this Nutcracker, with choreography by Yuri Grigorovich, the Bolshoi Ballet’s long-time legendary artistic director and choreographer, is a magical and romantic version of the score by Tchaikovsky. Grigorovich takes Hoffmann’s fantastic imagery and creates a world in which mice and soldiers go to battle, snowflakes flurry, and dolls come to life… The most talented dancers of the Bolshoi Ballet appear in this production including the enchanting and “irresistibly exuberant” (The Times) Nina Kaptsova and Artem Ovcharenko.

Conducted by Pavel Klinichev
