A Christmastime Tradition
There’s something magical about The Nutcracker at Christmastime. As a little girl I got dressed in my fanciest dress and enjoyed the show, just me and my mom. It’s a wonderful memory, one that I hope my daughter will one day be able cherish as well. The Nutcracker is a tradition I enjoy every year. This year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker at The Majestic Theatre was just as whimsical and magic as it was when I was a little girl. The beautiful backdrops and costumes and dancers didn’t disappoint, and seeing it in the picturesque Majestic Theatre made it all the more memorable.
The Nutcracker is the ultimate holiday tradition that creates memories for a lifetime. The production included 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 foreshadowing the Nutcracker Story at the opening Christmas Party. 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.” All ages feel the spirit of the season at Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker. It’s a timeless ballet that is a great family tradition.
