The Moscow Ballet’s version of “The Nutcracker” maintains the ballet’s traditional elements in a production filled with lavish costumes in the style of the Victorian era, hand-painted sets, and more than three dozen classically trained ballerinas and danseurs. This “Nutcracker” also offers many magical moments, like a 50-foot growing Christmas tree, the life-sized Matryoshka Dolls, a grandfather clock with flapping owl wings, and a two-person “Dove of Peace” that has a 20-foot wingspan, as it celebrates the great heritages of the world including African, Asian, European, Hispanic and Slavic peoples.
