Moscow Ballet: The Moscow Ballet touring company features top graduates of Perm, Vaganova, Moscow State Academic Choreographic and Kiev schools. Chief Choreographer Anatoly Emelianov returns with Vladimir Troshchenko as co-artistic directors, and Andre Litvinov joins them.

Moscow Ballet is best known for its annual Great Russian Nutcracker holiday productions. The company evolved out of the all-star Russian cast "Glasnost Festival Tour" (1986-92), created by award-winning Juilliard alumnus, composer/conductor and theatrical producer, Akiva Talmi. Moscow Ballet made its debut in 1993, with an all-star Russian cast presenting the Great Russian Nutcracker, directed and choreographed by Stanislav Vlasov (soloist, Bolshoi Theatre).

The company embarked on a six-week, eight-city tour featuring major cities across the U.S. In 1994, Moscow Ballet invited the Moscow State Theater of Natalia Sats and the theater's full orchestra to expand the company to an 88-artist tour. Its signature production was billed as the "19th Century Classical Nutcracker." South Carolina Public Television produced a full-length Nutcracker at Washington's Constitution Hall, underwritten by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children).

In 2003, Moscow Ballet announced the appointment of Anatoly Emelianov (winner of the Diagelev award) and Vladimir Troshchenko (director of Odessa State Ballet) as artistic directors, adding Andre Litvinov (director of Moldova State Ballet) in 2008. Over the years, Moscow Ballet has increased the size and scope of its tour adding Cinderella, Swan Lake, Carmen, and Sleeping Beauty(2008) to its schedule.
