Moscow Ballet's Nutcracker

I think that the performers are actually from a variety of companies...I also recall reading that there were a great number of tall men in it which was sort of unusual to note!

Don't anyone tell me anything too terrible about it as I've already ordered the tickets! From what I recalled reading about the performance earlier it did sound good. Sure hope so...
I'll be sure to let the curious know. biggrin.gif

And we have another Russian company in late Jan / early Feb: Russian National Theatre Ballet, accompanied by Russian National Philharmonic (?) with "Swan Lake","Nutcracker" and "Sleeping Beauty". Have no clue whether they are worth seeing or not.
Too many Russian companies visiting here. Most of them are simply not as good as our Chinese local companies.

Sadly, it was a real let down. C'est la vie.

Helen, it's strange that there are so many Moscow-based companies touring Beijing. Maybe it's time to see a St. Petersburg company for a change.

The program was pretty skimpy; the music was eek.gif recorded (OK, I know so was Stanton Welch's for his "Long and Winding Road" with ABT's Studio Co., but still!)
It reads: Akiva Talmi presents Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker Choreography by V. Vainone and Valery Lantratov.
"Masha" was plyaed by someone named Tatiana Predeina or it could have been Oxana Demchenko - there's no way of knowing because the program didn't specify!
I'll spare you the rest. I just want to be sure who I am talking about...so in the future I will know what or who to avoid!
