This afternoon I attended Moscow Ballet‘s Great Russian Nutcracker at the The Fillmore at Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach with our two youngest children, and it was quite an extravagant experience. The ballet was beautiful, the costumes spectacular, and our two little ones loved that there were young dancers on the stage as well.
With life-sized Matrushka (Nesting) Dolls, an enormous 3-headed Rat King and an authentic Russian style Troika Sleigh, the Nutcracker ballet comes to life on a big scale with the Moscow Ballet.
The talent on the stage was impressive, and the professionalism was mesmerizing. This was the perfect show to bring our little ones to this holiday season. The two-hour-show was enthralling throughout, and it made a big impression.
Bellamy Blue is only two, but she loves dancing, and as soon as she gets up she asks for her favorite dance costume or gymnastic leotard all depending on her mood for the day. She had been looking forward to the ballet all week, and she was not disappointed. This was the second time that our six-year-old son watched the nutcracker ballet, but he was especially impressed with the scenery changes at the Moscow Ballet‘s Great Russian Nutcracker and he could fill us in, whenever we were lost in the story line.
The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater is a beautiful theater from the 1950s, and we were lucky to get good seats in the old theater seats. It was the perfect setting for the show, but I am so glad that we got seats in the middle part of the orchestra, as the seats in front of us at the front part of the orchestra looked quite uncomfortable, especially if you bring kids or elderly with you to the performances. It was an enjoyable experience, and The Fillmore at Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach surely brings about a more charming performance experience than the larger, newer venues we usually visit.
