Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker
Tchaikovsky's classic score for this Christmas story opens with a "Miniature Overture." The music sets the fanciful holiday mood by using upper registers of the orcehstra exclusively as the curtain opens to reveal the iconic Moscow Skyline and guests arriving for a Christmas Eve party. The tale embarks with an elegant Nutcracker performance to a Grand Pas de Deux. The midnight Christmas festivity then concludes with the luxurious Farewell Waltz of the Flowers.
