“The Nutcracker”

Tchaikovsky’s treasured holiday masterpiece, “The Nutcracker” features choreography by Yuri Grigorovich. Principal dancers include Anna Nikulina (Marie), Denis Rodkin (The Nutcracker Prince), Andrei Merkuriev (Drosselmeyer) and Vitaly Biktimirov (The Mouse King), along with the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet.

On Christmas Eve, Marie is given a wooden nutcracker as a gift. When the clock strikes midnight and the celebrations are over, all the toys come to life. The Nutcracker, at the helm of the tin soldiers, transforms and saves Marie from the Mouse King and his army.

After victoriously defeating the mouse army, the Nutcracker, now a handsome young prince, whisks Marie away into their magic boat to the Land of Sweets. Marie and the Nutcracker-Prince are radiant with happiness: they have reached the kingdom of their dreams. Joyous celebrations can now begin. Yet, it appears it was all just a dream.

This beloved holiday classic will enchant the whole family with its fairytale setting and Tchaikovsky’s timeless score. The Bolshoi’s version of “The Nutcracker” has a unique and beautiful sense of romance and philosophy.
