SASKATOON, Nov. 6 /CNW/ - The great Moscow Ballet's anticipated 2009 tour has arrived, enamouring Regina and Saskatoon audiences with the brilliance of the Great Russian Nutcracker, November 6 and 8, respectfully.
With classical Russian-style and over 100 local ballerinas, this production features principal dancers, Ekaterina Bortykova and Akzhol Mussahanov; and the soulful opening ballads of singer/songwriter/Canadian Idol finalist, Jenn Beaupre.
"If you are a ballet lover, then Russian-style is absolutely the perfect muse to admire ballet through," explains Stacey Tookey, acclaimed choreographer of So You Think You Can Dance Canada (and USA). "Russian ballet is unlike what most Canadian audiences are accustomed to seeing; the Moscow Ballet is renowned for its extraordinarily technical and challenging style."
Impressing audiences since 1993, this year's Moscow Ballet North American Tour is scheduled to amaze seventy cities in the United States and Canada, with two hundred costumes and folkloric backdrops lovingly designed and handcrafted in St. Petersburg.
The Great Russian Nutcracker is presented at Regina's Conexus Arts Centre, November 6 and Saskatoon's TCU Place, November 8. Discounts offered to seniors, students and children. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster Canada or conexusartscentre.ca.
