27th Nutcracker presented by New England Ballet Company, the annual family holiday classic, under the artistic direction of Victor Trevino.
Clara’s dream is brought to life in a large cast production with exquisite costumes and dazzling choreography. Young, local children along with company dancers and guest artists add to the charm of the production. The moment the lights dim, the audience is transported to a magical place filled with adorable children, marching toy soldiers, a villainous Rat King and mischievous mice.
Enter the Land of the Sweets through a dreamy on-stage snowstorm led by the glamorous Snow Queen, with little angels to light the way. The Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier dance for Clara and the Nutcracker Prince and welcome them into a fantasy world of waltzing flowers, dancing princesses from around the world, and Mother Ginger and her precocious children are sure to delight everyone! A wonderful ballet for the entire family, Nutcracker is the perfect way to introduce children to the power and beauty of classical dance.
Saturday, December 15 at Noon and 5:00 p,m, and Sunday, December 16 at 1:00 p.m. at the Klein Memorial Auditorium, 910 Fairfield Avenue, Bridgeport, CT.
