Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema
Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography by Yuri Grigorovich
On Christmas Eve, the mysterious Drosselmeyer brings a Nutcracker doll as a gift for his goddaughter Marie. At midnight, the doll comes to life and finds himself in a battle led with the Mouse King, while Marie watches in fear.
The Bolshoi's magical Nutcracker production captivates audiences of all ages and brings them on a whirlwind journey of enchantment with rising star Soloist Margarita Shrainer perfectly embodying Marie's innocence and joy along with the supremely elegant Principal Dancer Semyon Chudin as her Nutcracker Prince. A timeless holiday classic accompanied by Tchaikovsky's beloved score.
150 minutes. Suitable for audiences of all ages.
