Nina Kaptsova and Artem Ovcharenko danced their Marie and Nutcracker-Prince to congratulate Yuri Grigorovich on the occasion of his 90th birthday!

There is nothing that says Christmas more than "The Nutcracker", and if you are lucky enough to be in Moscow during the holiday season, there is no better place to see it than in the Bolshoi. With its designs by long-time collaborator Simon Virsaladze, Grigorovich’s production looks a pure delight. Put on your dressiest clothes, take your kids — or spouse, parents, grandparents or best friends — by the hand and sashay into the Bolshoi. Take your seat amid the gilt and velvet, and enjoy the ballet!
