Deemed by the New York Times as a "knockout production brimful with a feeling that will leave kids wide-eyed with delight," Moscow Ballet's Nutcracker! Magic of Christmas Ballet is a must-see event for the entire family. Since the early 1990s, the ballet production has been touring around US and Canada every Christmas season to showcase the beauty and magic of the Nutcracker ballet.
Originally named "Great Russian Nutcracker," the show celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Thus, spectators and long-time fans of this 5-star production can expect a more memorable performance this year. The official website of Moscow Ballet lists 24 US states to be part of the tour this year, with over 30 venues. This is a big contrast to its start in the 90s, wherein it started with only 8 venues. Now, many families across the nation can enjoy the show.
Aside from its 30th anniversary of touring North America, this is also a monumental year for the production as its producer, Talmi Entertainment, decided that the famous show would be renamed. This move is in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, which is devastatingly affected by the war against Russia. Thus, a portion of ticket proceeds will be donated to humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine, allowing the artists and patrons of "NUTCRACKER! Magic of Christmas Ballet" to use this 30th Anniversary Tour as a platform to directly help those in need.
"Talmi Entertainment's production has always had at its heart a message of international unity. It is more important than ever to speak out for peace and humanity with the tools we have: the international languages of dance and art and love," said Akiva Talmi, Founder and Producer of Talmi Entertainment.
By raising these humanitarian efforts, the production hopes that they will send a message of Peace and Harmony this Christmas season.
