State Ballet Theatre of Russia: The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker is the perennial favorite of generations of children and “children at heart.” The treasured holiday adventure follows a little girl’s journey through a fantasy world of fairies, princes, toy soldiers, and an army of mice. Thrill to the same authentic Russian choreography that is performed in Moscow by the famous Bolshoi Ballet. Set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved music, including “Waltz of the Flowers, "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” and “Waltz of the Snowflakes,” the entire family will love this magical experience filled with spectacular sets and beautiful costumes.


Imagine an artist creating a masterpiece before your eyes in mere moments. With a palette that also mixes captivating vocals and intricate choreography, Artrageous takes audiences on a one-of-a-kind visual journey packed with wild inspiration, creativity, and fun. The Artrageous artists, musicians, singers, and dancers pay tribute to a variety of art forms, pop icons, and musical genres throughout the evening. The result is a uniquely entertaining show culminating in a gallery of fabulous finished paintings.
