The Nutcracker (Mariinsky Theatre)

The Nutcracker (Mariinsky Theatre)

The premiere The Nutcracker took place at the Mariinsky Theater of Russia in 1892. Now in the 21st century, Mikhail Shemiakin, Russian emigre and world-renowned avant-garde artist and sculptor has reinterpreted the historical ballet. Known as "the sophisticated and witty Nutcracker," Mikhail Shemiakin's version is an unconventional production that turns tradition on its head.
