Moscow City Ballet's production of The Nutcracker

Following a triumphant Silver Anniversary tour, Moscow City Ballet’s eagerly anticipated return gets underway with The Nutcracker at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

The timeless classic is complete with stunning costumes, sumptuous sets and Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece score.

This enchanting ballet tells the story of Clara’s magical adventure with her Nutcracker Prince, including a visit to the delicious Land of Sweets and the delightful Sugar Plum Fairy.

The company’s exceptional repertoire combines artistry, technique, narrative and live music to provide stunning productions of ‘big story’ Russian dance.

The audience can not only marvel at the perfection of its corps de ballet but witness the superb dexterity, grace and vitality of the principal dancers from this young and talented cast.

Founded in 1988 by Victor Smirnov-Golovanov –who sadly died in 2013 after a long battle with cancer – Moscow City Ballet remains in the safe hands of his devoted wife LudmilaNeroubashchenko, who has been leading the ballet company for the last few years.

She will now officially take on the position of artistic director and will continue to preserve Victor’s unique choreography and productions as well as the commitment to promoting ballet in the Russian Classical tradition all over the world.

The company is being accompanied on tour by the Moscow City Ballet Orchestra which provides a dynamic vitality to this remarkable dance production, making it the perfect festive treat.

The sumptuous show runs until Saturday.
