Details of Great Russian Nutcracker - Muskegon MI and the Ticket Luck value
The Great Russian Nutcracker is perhaps the most famous two act ballets in the history. The ballet was originally choreographed by Marius Petipa while the music of the ballet came from the genius of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Prior to composition a musical score for the Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky was already enjoying mainstream success following the critical acclaim of The Sleeping Beauty. While composing the music for the ballet, Tchaikovsky had to work within the detailed instructions given by Petipa. Even though Tchaikovsky didn’t like working under such constraints, but still he managed to pull the job off in an amazing manner. The libretto of the ballet came from the popular story of that time, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, which was penned by E.T.A Hoffmann.
The Great Russian Nutcracker made its world premiere with a performance at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg on December 18, 1892. Even though the original production of the ballet didn’t enjoy much of commercial or critical success but later in 1960s it went on to enjoy massive amount of popularity and mainstream success. Since then the Great Russian Nutcracker has been performed by a number of ballet companies and this year the Great Russian Nutcracker Muskegon MI performance is expected to draw huge crowd.
The performance of the ballet around the Christmas season has become a tradition in the United States, which is why a number of productions of the Nutcracker are running simultaneously during that time. This year, just like the tradition goes, the ballet comes to Muskegon MI and you can catch it with Great Russian Nutcracker Muskegon MI tickets.
