Kazan children will be able to visit for free the Masquerade Ball “New
Adventures of the Nutcracker”, which takes place on New Year's Eve in the City
Hall. On behalf of the Mayor of Kazan, gifted children, disabled children and
children from low-income families are invited to the show. Ilsur Metshin
visited one of the performances and congratulated the children on the upcoming
“It is a great pleasure for me to congratulate you on the
coming New Year and to wish you a good health, that you will please us, your
parents and grandparents with your successes”, Ilsur Metshin greeted the young
spectators, then addressed to adults. “Dear parents, I want to thank all the
citizens of Kazan in your person for the creative 2017year. We worked each in
right place, doing everything to make Kazan more beautiful and comfortable.
That our children had every opportunity to develop their talents in this
wonderful city. So that they would study well, be innocent and real, and
believe in the miracle. That Ded Moroz and the Snow Maiden will come to make
all their dreams come true. I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart”,
said the Mayor.
The New Year's ball-masquerade, based on the famous work
“The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” to the magnificent music by Pyotr
Tchaikovsky, carried guests to the fairy tale. For two centuries now, this
story tells of the fearless Nutcracker, a valiant victory over the mouse king,
friendship, and boundless faith in a miracle.

those who attended the performance by the invitation of the Mayor of Kazan. As
the woman said, they became guests of the City Hall for the first time. “It is
very beautiful in here. I liked the ball-masquerade very much, I would like to
see more such performances”, she said.
Many came to see the “Nutcracker” on their own. “The play
was pleasant because it is bright and beautiful. I feel the atmosphere of the
New Year”, little Mira Tetruashvili, who came with her mother Natalia, shared
