Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker

Tchaikovsky’s countrymen perform his masterpiece

The touring Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker pairs dancers and choreographers from the Soviet era with today’s newest stars. It’s the real thing, chock-full of elegant pas de deux, decadent sets of the Kingdom of Sweets and a host of local children skittering around as mice or snowflakes. Plus, we can assure you that the lightning-quick “Russian Dance,” always a crowd-pleaser with its astounding leaps and impossible energy, will be a special treat in the hands of experts. 3 p.m. today, 7:30 p.m. Friday. Stafford Centre Performing Arts Theatre, 10505 Cash Road in Stafford. For information, call 281-208-6900 or visit $25 to $65.
Fri., Dec. 28, 7:30 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 29, 3 & 7:30 p.m., 2007
