Dolls with nutcracker theme are very popular in Russia as well as in the US. The Nutcracker ballet was initially presented at the Maryinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia, on December 17, 1892. Peter Tchaikovsky, the famous Russian composer wrote the music. The choreographer Marius Petipa composed the ballet, score based on Alexandre Dumas’s adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffman’s tale "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King." Almost every year Alkota Russian Treasures produces custom made dolls with nutcracker for different companies and venues, festivals and festivities. Our collection is composed of assorted quality dolls-some of them are unique, others - limited edition. One-of-a kind dolls with nutcracker could cost up till several thousand dollars, since the main scenes of the ballet are difficult to paint in all its intricacy on the limited surface of the wood.
