Indulge in a Christmas Tradition When You Make Plans to See the Great Russian Nutcracker

This Christmas, give your family the gift of the Great Russian Nutcracker, performed by Moscow Ballet! This celebrated performance will come to Plaza Theatre on Friday, December 6th. Don’t miss it!

Step into a simpler time filled with sweet dreams and Christmas magic. The origin of the Nutcracker, a classic Christmas story, is a fairy tale ballet in two acts centered on a family’s Christmas Eve celebration. Alexandre Dumas Père’s adaptation of the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann was set to music by Tchaikovsky and originally choreographed by Marius Petipa. Celebrate this cherished holiday tradition and relive the dream with Tchaikovsky’s timeless score.

Moscow Ballet’s version of the Nutcracker ballet, known as the “Great Russian Nutcracker,” includes other unique elements in the telling of the traditional holiday tale. In the Moscow Ballet version, the setting is in Moscow and the city’s famous onion-domed skyline is featured as a backdrop. Traditional Russian folk characters Ded Moroz (Father Christmas) and Snegurochka (Snow Maiden) escort Masha and the Nutcracker Prince to their dream world in Act II.

With world-class artists, over 200 dazzling costumes, stunning sets, towering puppets, and soaring birds, don’t miss your chance to ring in the holidays with this acclaimed Christmas extravaganza!

Bringing a message of Peace and Unity, the 2019 tour will spread goodwill in over 150 cities across the US and Canada, including El Paso, Texas on December 6th.
