The Moscow Ballet Auditions In Calgary
MOSCOW BALLET’S GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER
Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is the unique telling of the classic story of Masha (Clara) and her Nutcracker Doll told with true Russian flair. In 2012, Moscow Ballet celebrates its 20th year of touring this performance across North America, and to much critical acclaim! The whimsical fantasy of Moscow Ballet’s Nutcracker is legendary, with the piece firmly enshrined as a Christmas staple for audiences across the USA and in Canada. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s beloved Nutcracker Suite, and Moscow Ballet’s company of 40 Vaganova-trained dancers are the perfect combination for a holiday celebration for all.
Moscow Ballet casts 60 dance students from ages seven to young teens in ancillary roles for the Great Russian Nutcracker tour. Student dancers will perform alongside the full corps of Russian dancers.
