It’s the most famous holiday ballet on the planet, which has been enchanting adults and children since 1892. The Moscow Ballet version of The Nutcracker returns to NYC in December, and you need to get tickets now before they sell out.
We have half-priced tickets, $30 instead of $60, for the matinee performance on Saturday, Dec. 3.
The most famous holiday ballet has its roots in Russia, premiering there in 1892 with a majestic score by Tchaikovsky and choreography by Petipa, the father of Russian dance. It’s fitting, then, that the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is one of the most acclaimed versions ever to grace the stage.
Almost 40 renowned, award-winning principal Russian dancers and corps de ballet will take the stage to dance the timeless story of young Masha (Clara), who receives the gift of a nutcracker one Christmas and dreams that night of a grand adventure with her Nutcracker Prince.
With breathtaking leaps, hundreds of hand-sewn costumes, a magical snow forest with falling snow, a giant Christmas tree and a cannon that shoots roses, children and adults alike will be swept up in the spirit of the season.
Enjoy the ultimate holiday tradition at the beautifully renovated Kings Theatre in Brooklyn.
