A Christmas season classic, which has enjoyed fantastic popularity, and generally one of the world’s best-loved ballets, The Nutcracker has enthralled ballet-goers for decades. This production of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is being performed by the┬áGrand Moscow State Classical Ballet.

In a flurry of color and music,┬áthe ballet’s 63 dancers will take to the Salle de Princes floor to celebrate the music, authentic choreography and festive atmosphere of the winter season.
