Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker

When: Sun., Dec. 17, 4 & 8 p.m. 2017

We get it. Ballet may not be for everyone. But if your only knowledge of ballet comes from that super effed-up Aronofsky movie Black Swan, it’s time to re-educate. Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is glissé-ing through Detroit just in time for the holidays. For 25 years the Moscow Ballet has been revered as the best of the best. Tchaikovsky’s incomparable score will move nearly 40 dancers to tell the story of the Nutcracker complete with lavish costumes, life-sized Matryoshka Dolls, and backdrops created by La La Land set concept designer Carl Sprague

Price: $48
