Great Russian Nutcracker

Put off packing up the tree, lights and eggnog (mmm, eggnog) for another few days. After all, Christmas cheer can last straight through to the new year. Or at least that’s what the Moscow Ballet believes, as it brings its Great Russian Nutcracker to the Stafford Centre for one final bout of ballet. Visiting from the land of the Nutcracker’s composer, Tchaikovsky, the ensemble offers one of the most elaborate, artful Nutcracker productions out there — of course, with all the technical precision and classical elegance to be expected from the Russians. The company features graduates from the chilly country’s top ballet schools and local children, who will leap and twirl their way through Clara’s mansion, the pine forest, and the Kingdom of Sweets, meeting the Rat King and the Sugar Plum Fairy along the way. Prepare yourself, of course, for a spectacular Russian Dance. 3 p.m. 10505 Cash Road, Stafford. For information, call 281-208-6900 or visit $30 to $65.
Sun., Dec. 28, 3 p.m., 2008
