Watch the Nutcracker at Cedar Lee

Most of us won't be jetting off to Moscow this week to catch the Bolshoi Ballet's performance of the Nutcracker. But thanks to the fine folks at the Cedar Lee Theatre, we can still expose ourselves to culture while skipping the whole-body scan. Today at 11 a.m. the Cleveland Heights movie house presents a live HD simulcast of the world-renowned company performing Tchaikovsky's classic Christmas fantasy. Starring Nina Kaptsova as Marie and Arten Ovcharenko as the Nutcracker/Prince, the ballet will feature the choreography of iconic dancer and artistic director Yuri Grigorovich, who famously first produced the ballet at the Bolshoi in 1968. (Now in his 80s, this living legend is credited with creating some of the most spectacular ballets of the Soviet era. The Bolshoi, by the way, is in its 235th season.) If you go, you will be one of thousands of fans in 300 theaters across 22 countries watching the performance, which begins at 7 p.m. Moscow time. Tix are $20 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under; snag them at the box office at 2163 Lee Rd. in Cleveland Heights or online at clevelandcinemas.com. — Cicora
