Recurring Event Event Series: The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

December 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

In this special holiday production, select guest artists will dazzle in the major dance roles.  Victoria Rinaldi works with the community to stage the party, battle, angels and Mother Ginger.  Award-winning choreographer Margo Sappington returns to play Auntie Drosselmeyer.

The Nutcracker is the story of a young girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and his fierce battle against a Mouse King.  According to folklore, nutcrackers represent power and strength and bring good luck to your family and protect your home.  The story of The Nutcracker is a dream about good triumphing evil through the goodness of heart of a young child.  The Nutcracker is a two-act ballet, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.  The libretto is adapted by E.T.A. Hoffman’s story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King”.
