By B.BAATAR

The Ulaanbaatar Mayor’s Office and Mongolian Ballet Development Fund will be presenting the world famous “The Nutcracker” ballet, by P.I.Tchaikovsky, at the Mongolian State Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet from December 12 to 27.
Deputy Mayor of Ulaanbaatar Ts.Enkhtsengel, and director of “The Nutcracker” and State Honored Artist D.Altankhuyag held a press conference on Wednesday.
D.Altankhuyag directed “The Nutcracker” last year. A total of 180 children aged eight to 12 that were studying ballet and dance participated in last year’s performance.
This year, over 200 children will participate in “The Nutcracker” and they started rehearsals this week.
The Mongolian Ballet Development Fund sent invitations to 10 children with cerebral palsy to watch “The Nutcracker”.
The income from the ballet will be used for purchasing a spider cage, which is a belt that can support movement of children with cerebral palsy.
