Treat Yourself a Theatrical Treat with a Performance of the Great Russian Nutcracker

Christmas is coming— and so is the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker. With world-class Russian artists, hand-painted sets, and jubilant performances, the Great Russian Nutcracker brings the Christmas spirit to life for all ages.

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.

The story centers on a young girl’s Christmas Eve and her awakening to the wider world and romantic love. 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. The New York Times, “Hot Ticket!”

Celebrate this cherished holiday tradition and relive the dream with Tchaikovsky’s timeless score. Bringing a message of Peace and Unity, the 2019 tour will spread goodwill in over 150 cities across the US and Canada, including Durham on Wednesday, December 18th and Thursday, December 19th.

Tickets start at $31.00 via Ticketmaster. For more information regarding the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker, please visit
