Great Russian Nutcracker tickets

Moscow Ballet brings the Gift of Christmas Tour to Midland with Great Russian Nutcracker performances at 3 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center.
Tickets go on sale Friday.
The Great Russian Nutcracker features award-winning principal ballerinas and dancers from the top ballet academies in Russia and a large corps de ballet. Three groups travel simultaneously to 140-plus cities across the United States and in Canada in November and December.
Moscow Ballet also advocates for community engagement in the arts and sends advance dancers to tour cities. These dancers audition local ballet students for children’s roles in the performances.
The dancers also audition local musicians to accompany the principal ballerina in a special pre-performance duet and they execute the “New Horizons — A Children’s Program for Life” program which engages school children and youth groups in interactive arts awareness. All are provided free, a news release said.
