One of the most beloved holiday family traditions, The Nutcracker tells the tale of a young girl who receives the gift of a nutcracker doll at her family’s Christmas party. In her dreams that night, the nutcracker doll comes to life as a handsome prince who joins her on a magical journey.

Together, they travel to lands filled with dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers, a mouse army and other exotic characters, all brought to vivid life on stage in this magical production.

The Nutcracker features Lev Ivanov’s original, beloved choreography, with additional staging by George Birkadze and Marina Kessler. Sergey Novikov is the scenic and costume designer, and Mark Stavtsev is the lighting designer.

In conjunction with the production, Gorskaya-Hartwick Productions will offer a free, fun and entertaining Ballet for All Masterclass for the local community on Dec 9 at 1:30 PM. Taught by World Ballet Series cast members, Ballet for All is specifically developed for participants with no previous ballet experience. Participants will meet cast members, learn some ballet basics including commonly-used gestures, and thrill to demonstrations by the cast.
