Nutcracker 2023


The Marat Daukayev Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker features dancers whose artistry and poise belie their young ages. This full-length ballet complete with battling mice and soldiers, an enchanting snowy forest, and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, is an audience favorite.

With more than 100 dancers and 400 costumes, acclaimed former Kirov ballet star Marat Daukayev dances the role of Drosselmeyer alongside his amazingly accomplished students in this iconic and magically festive holiday classic.

Marat Daukayev received his professional training at the Vaganova and Perm Ballet Schools. During his career, he danced the leading male roles in the complete repertoire of classical ballets with numerous international ballet companies. He has also performed in both film and television. St. Petersburg audiences loved him for the brilliant technique and exceptional dramatic ability that he brought to his roles. Daukayev founded his ballet academy in 2001.
