The Moscow Ballet will be performing The Nutcracker this weekend at the Kirkland Fine Arts Center at Millikin University.
According to Director of Kirkland Fine Arts, Jan Traughber, there will be two performances of the ballet, which will be accompanied by the Millikin Orchestra conducted by Sergey Bogza.
Over 100 local children will also be a part of the performance, which, Traughber adds, the Moscow Ballet has down to a science.
Tickets range from $35-$65 and $10 for students. Traughber indicates that you should buy tickets directly from them and not from scalpers if you want lower prices.
You can purchase tickets by calling their ticket office at (217) 424-6318 or online at kirklandfinearts.com.
