Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker

by The Staff on December 5, 2013


This Moscow Ballet edition of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker features an all-star collection of 40 dancers from various Russian troupes, along with opulent costumes and eye-candy scenery.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer praised this production for its “elegant and soft-edged choreography that reveals the clarity of line so vital to Russian classical style. . . . The level of dancing was impressive, with the corps of snowflakes almost effortlessly graceful and various other ensemble sequences full of sophistication and buoyancy.”

The Moscow Ballet will present their Great Russian Nutcracker tonight (Thursday, Dec. 5) at 7:30 PM at the Palace Theatre (19 Clinton Ave., Albany). Tickets are $27.50 to $68. For more info, call 465-3334.
