The Moscow Ballet Brings the Great Russian Nutcracker to Life for Deserving Children this Holiday
In a year filled with so many unknowns and challenges, the Moscow Ballet with the help of Tickets.com brought some holiday magic to those in need. The experience began with a commitment to support The Young and Brave Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports families of children and young adults during their battle with cancer.
Throughout the run of the Great Russian Nutcracker, the Moscow Ballet was able to help support donations as well as give two special ballet bears a home in the arms of Kalea & Noah Avery, through The Young and Brave Foundation.
The surprises and delight did not stop there as the Moscow Ballet was able to offer up more holiday magic with children from three additional nonprofit organizations across the country, BeYoutiful Foundation, Camp Good Days, and Roswell Park, all had an opportunity to meet the exceptionally talented ballerina Anna Trofimova, of the Moscow Ballet this Saturday, December 12 in a live video call.
The event started with Trofimova introducing herself to the children, and showing them different detailed costumes from the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and a traditional red tutu, Trofimova’s favorite color. Each child then had the chance to ask the ballerina different questions, from “What do you do in your free time?” to “Who is your favorite superhero?”.
A lot of laughs and fun were had by all, especially the aspiring future ballerinas on the call, and in that moment, life seemed suspended in mid-air like a magic leap. Following the meeting, the children and their families were treated to an exclusive premiere streaming of the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker before the public release.
The Moscow Ballet also donated a number of beautifully crafted Nutcracker books to patients at the Roswell Park Hospital, and as a further token of their commitment to community you can share a digital copy of the Nutcracker story with your family and friends.
And don’t forget to experience the beloved official holiday classic, the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker streamed safely from home with your loved ones. Get your ticket now.
