Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker is the holiday tradition for families in over 70 North American cities. Exclusive to the Great Russian Nutcracker is the "Dove of Peace", with a 20 foot wingspan and created by two dancers moving as one; Russian folk legends Father Christmas/Ded Moroz and Snow Maiden/Snegurochka, who escort Masha and Nutcracker Prince to the Land of Peace and Harmony; life-sized Matrushka Dolls and whimsical 10 foot tall silk puppets. New in 2014 is an authentic Russian Christmas puppet play and Masha's magical Toy Cabinet. Wearing intricately detailed costumes, many with shimmering Swarovski crystals, the award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet bring Tchaikovsky's master score and the holiday season to life.
