Moscow City Ballet returns to Poland with two magnificent shows. Firstly, Polish audience will be able to see “The Nutcracker”.

For spectacular presentations of classical ballet, the Russian companies are hard to beat and Moscow City Ballet is currently at its artistic best. The company is brimming with some of Russia’s best young dancers – outstanding principals, stunning soloists and a sublime corps de ballet – all enhanced by the dynamic vitality of a live orchestra. The choreography, interpretation, beauty and outstanding virtuoso performances constantly win rapturous audience response and excellent reviews.

“The Nutcracker” is the perfect fairytale treat. It follows Clara’s Christmas Eve adventures with her Nutcracker prince and his battles with the Mouse King in the beautiful Kingdom of Flowers. Set to Tchaikovsky’s endearingly popular score, The Nutcracker is an unmissable festive delight for all the family.
