Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker
Russia's legendary ballet brings its version of a holiday classic to Tulsa.
Just like building a snowman, holiday decorating and baking cookies, taking in a performance of The Nutcracker is one of those activities on the holiday checklist many of us look forward to every year. With so many groups, from schools to professional companies, scheduling renditions of the classic story, the Mabee Center in Tulsa has brought back the Moscow Ballet to present its 20th annual U.S. tour of soldiers, mice and fairy princesses under the Christmas tree on Dec. 4. From the land of Tchaikovsky, the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker features the sparkle of elaborate sets, sumptuous costumes, silk puppetry and an attention to lavishness making this vision of the Nutcracker Prince especially rich in tradition and beautiful to watch. Tickets are $33-$76, available at the Mabee Center box office and online at www.mabeecenter.com.
