\"The troupe boasts a cluster of phenomenal young dancers....\" – The New York Times Bronx, NY – Direct from Russia, Lehman Center for the Performing Arts presents a delightful holiday classic, THE NUTCRACKER , performed by The Moscow Classical Ballet. The company has the distinction of being one of only three state-supported Russian ballet troupes; the other two are the Bolshoi and the Kirov. Last year’s audiences loved the show so much that Lehman brought the company back to dazzle them once again.
Millions have celebrated the holiday season with The Nutcracker enjoying Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score and Hoffman’s heartwarming story of a little girl who dreams on Christmas Eve of a Nutcracker Prince and goes on a wonderful journey through magical lands. Combining this wonderful ballet with one of the world’s best ballet companies offers audiences a unique opportunity to enjoy the holiday season. Gia Kourlas of The New York Times wrote in a review of last season’s show: “This Nutcracker was serious business.”
"We have a wonderful holiday season and this high quality production of The Nutcracker is exactly what the Bronx deserves," said Eva Bornstein, Executive Director of Lehman Center. "We want everyone to share this experience with their children so we have a special $10 price for children 12 and under for this and our other three holiday shows."
