Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker
- December 19, 2012 - December 20, 2012 at 7:30 pm
In 1993, Moscow Ballet toured the Great Russian Nutcracker for the first time across North America to critical acclaim. Directed and choreographed by Stanislav Vlasov, former soloist with the Bolshoi Ballet and well known as a “Grand Dance Artist,” the inaugural six-week tour traveled to major cities across the U.S. and starred principal ballerina Lillia Sabitova. It also featured the innovative rolling backgrounds, first created by a St Petersburg Conservatory of Music producer, and which were the inspiration for Eisenstein’s cinematic technique. 2012 celebrates the 20th anniversary of Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker!
