Now that Halloween is over, have you started to get into the holiday spirit? The day after Halloween, we took down all the decorations and starting stringing our Christmas lights outside. And, the girls have already begun cutting out paper snowflakes to fill the windows with. :-) I don't know about you, but I love this time of year. Oh, and don't get me started on the holiday shows that have already started to air on television. Just the other night I caught the Nutcracker and found myself reminiscing about my childhood when my parents would take my brothers and I into Boston to see the Nutcracker at the theatre. I loved watching all the dancers and seeing the costumed characters take the stage to bring the Nutcracker to life. And, now with a family of my own, I will be introducing my girls to the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker, as it is making a stop in Boston at the Orpheum Theatre in early Dec. I can't wait to see their reaction this holiday show. And, I can't wait to see the show as it has been a long time since I have seen the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker, and I have missed it.
Here is more information about the show...
"Families love Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker! It's the ultimate holiday tradition and creates memories for a lifetime. The production includes over 200 romantic costumes and 10' tall playful animal puppets; shimmering colorful, backdrops splashed with 3-D effects; life-sized Matrushka (Nesting) Dolls and a puppet show for shadowing the Nutcracker Story at the opening Christmas Party. During the battle with Nutcracker Prince and the 3-headed Rat King, a golden cannon shoots roses! In the Magical Snow Forest an authentic Russian style Troika Sleigh, known as the fastest sleigh in the world, is escorted by Father Christmas (Ded Moroz) and Snow Maiden (Snegurochka) on their way to Act II. The Great Russian Nutcracker is known for its dedication to world peace with Act II named the "Land of Peace and Harmony." The first scene of Act II features a stunning "Dove of Peace" with a 20' wingspan and danced by 2 dancers each with one feathered wing.

In 1993, Moscow Ballet toured the Great Russian Nutcracker to Washington DC, Baltimore, Syracuse, Orlando, Ft Lauderdale, New Haven, Reading and Charleston WV for the first time to critical acclaim. Directed and choreographed by Stanislav Vlasov, former soloist with the Bolshoi Ballet, and well known as a "Grand Dance Artist," the inaugural six-week tour starred principal ballerina Lillia Sabitova. It also featured the innovative rolling backgrounds first created by a St Petersburg Conservatory of Music producer, and which were the inspiration for Eisenstein's cinematic technique. Since then the annual tour has increased to include about 100 performances on the tour to cities from San Juan to Calgary, and from New York to California, traveling with two simultaneously touring companies of forty dancers each."
