crossing the country in November and December, with artistic directors Anatoli Emelianov and Vladimier Trashenko leading simultaneous tours of the holiday classic.

Acclaimed for exquisite dancing and spectacular sets and costumes, critics say that Anatoli Emelianov’s Great Russian Nutcracker is “dazzling.”

I had seen this performance several years before, but was disappointed this time by the commercialism injected into it by the co. Stuffed animals dancing on stage? Not professional. There were 4 dances going on at once at one point, the professionals, the local senior girls, the babies,and the stuffed animal things. Would have been nice with just the pros and seniors. Rude audience members with no theatre etiquette. I'm sorry, but it's just not the Nutcracker without live music.
