Well, on the Moscow Ballet's production. The Moscow Ballet's Nut is a beautiful one. I would recomend it to anyone who likes to see splendid dancing, and the Nutcracker. The local performers are all instructed beautifuly, and the company regulars are extremely good! The sets and costumes are also very beautiful.
I must warn, however, that the Moscow Ballet's production is more of the Russian typicality. Hence, it is being billed as the "Great Russian Nutcracker." The part of Masha (You might know her as Marrie or Clara.) is played by a a corps soloist. There is no Sugar Plum Fairy, and there is much more dancing. For us ballet fanatics, that's a good thing. For people who shed away from ballet, it isn't quite their cup of tea. ;)
But, this is a wonderful production. Go see it. Tickets aren't expensive for this production. In most cases, it ranges from $18 to $38.
