The Nutcracker: The Bolshoi Ballet

Live from the Moscow Stage!

Holiday Events
Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema is an initiative to bring world-class ballet, direct from the legendary Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, exclusively to cinema audiences around the world. Each production features a complete performance plus behind-the-scenes, interviews with cast and creative teams and other bonus content. The 2019-20 season marks the 10th Anniversary of the program.

On Christmas Eve, the mysterious Drosselmeyer brings a Nutcracker doll as a gift for his goddaughter Marie. At midnight, the doll comes to life and finds himself in a battle led with the Mouse King, while Marie watches in fear.

The Bolshoi’s magical Nutcracker production captivates audiences of all ages and brings them on whirlwind journey of enchantment with rising star Soloist Margarita Shrainer perfectly embodying Marie’s innocence and joy along with the supremely elegant Principal Dancer Semyon Chudin as her Nutcracker Prince. A timeless holiday classic accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s beloved score.
