Russia’s legendary National Ballet Theatre of Odessa returns to NJPAC with a stunning company of dozens of performers in a sumptuous, traditional staging of The Nutcracker.
The National Ballet Theatre of Odessa is acclaimed for its production of this perennial favorite of generations of children – and children at heart. The Nutcracker is a treasured holiday fairytale that follows a young girl's journey through a fantasy world of fairies, princes, toy soldiers – and an army of mice! Set to Tchaikovsky's beloved score, you’ll hear all your favorites: "Waltz of the Flowers," "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy," "Waltz of the Snowflakes," and more.
Featuring choreography after Marius Petipa – the same authentic Russian choreography performed regularly in Moscow by the famed Bolshoi Ballet – as well as spectacular sets and beautiful costumes, this Nutcracker is a truly magical experience the entire family is sure to love.
