‘Great Russian Nutcracker’ performance here canceled

The Moscow Ballet’s “Great Russian Nutcracker” performance, scheduled for Dec. 29 at the Vicksburg Auditorium, has been canceled because of scheduling problems on the ballet’s end, Vicksburg Convention Center and Auditorium marketing and events coordinator Erin Powell said.

“There were some routing problems and some technical problems they couldn’t make work,” said Powell. “All those who’d purchased tickets have been refunded.”

Three simultaneous tours will bring the “Great Russian Nutcracker” to more than 70 cities in the United States through the end of the year. 

The performances closest to Vicksburg will now be in Memphis Dec. 7 and in Birmingham, Ala., Dec. 28. For tickets, click here.
