About

The Nutcracker
Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography by Yuri Grigorovich after Marius Petipa

Bold choreography… dramatic gesture… elaborate spectacle. Magnificent grandeur has always been a part of the Bolshoi Ballet’s celebrated identity, from its legendary 18th-century beginnings, to its triumphant return to the American stage in 2000. Their smash U.S. tour, organized by the Kennedy Center, dazzled audiences with dancing “of unparalleled intensity and brilliance” (The Washington Post)—signaling a glorious new renaissance for Moscow’s flagship company.

Now fueled by a fresh and invigorating style, glittering productions, and impassioned performances by a new cadre of premier soloists, this fabled company continues to remind the world why its legacy has endured for so long. Russia’s “unfailing marvel” (Financial Times, London) returns to the Kennedy Center for its second appearance in 2002—with the perennial holiday favorite, The Nutcracker.
