When Marius Petipa (1818 — 1910) choreographed the "Nutcracker" in 1892, he couldn't have guessed that he was creating a Christmas tradition that would thrive into the 21st century. That work continues to enchant and delight us every holiday season wherever you can find a ballet company. And Petipa was hardly a one-hit wonder. Though perhaps not as much of a household name as Tchaikovsky, he also worked closely with the composer to create "Swan Lake" and "Sleeping Beauty." Explore the life of the principal choreographer of St. Petersburg's Imperial Ballet at a new exhibition at the Bakhrushin Theatre Museum with The Moscow Times Clubs. Afterwards, we will discuss our impressions over a complimentary drink.
