If you’re like me, you have a little girl who loooooooves ‘dance’.
Turn on some music and she’s groovin’ in the living room; flip over to Dance Moms (a guilty pleasure!) and she stares with rapturous attention at the television; even mention the idea of signing up for dance classes and she refuses to let the idea drop!
So, I was delighted to discover that the Moscow Ballet is bringing their version of the Nutcracker to St. Louis!
If you don’t know anything about it, it’s the ultimate holiday tradition and creates memories for a lifetime. The production includes over 200 romantic costumes and 10′ tall playful animal puppets; shimmering colorful, backdrops splashed with 3-D effects; life-sized Matrushka (Nesting) Dolls and a puppet show for shadowing the Nutcracker Story at the opening Christmas Party.
During the battle with the Nutcracker Prince and the 3-headed Rat King, a golden cannon shoots roses! What little girl wouldn’t love that?!?
In the Magical Snow Forest, an authentic Russian style Troika Sleigh, known as the fastest sleigh in the world, is escorted by Father Christmas (Ded Moroz) and Snow Maiden (Snegurochka) on their way to Act II.
The Great Russian Nutcracker is known for its dedication to world peace with Act II named the “Land of Peace and Harmony.” The first scene of Act II features a stunning “Dove of Peace” with a 20′ wingspan and danced by 2 dancers each with one feathered wing.
All ages feel the spirit of the season at Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker and I think it’s a great way to get your holiday season started off with a BANG! Because I love you guys so much, I’ve managed to finagle a special deal for you, so you too can take in the wonderment of the Nutcracker and not have your wallet sobbing softly in your pocket!
