Marching toy soldiers, waltzing snowflakes, mischievous mice and Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score are quintessential hallmarks of the holidays. Celebrate the season with Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's student production of The Nutcracker, a holiday ballet for the whole family. Featuring dancers of all ages, The Nutcracker tells the story of young Clara, who receives a gift of a wooden nutcracker doll at her parents' Christmas party. That night, she dreams her nutcracker comes to life and together they battle the wicked Mouse King and journey through an enchanted forest of snow to reach the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy and all her sweet subjects await them.

I thoroughly enjoyed this show. The opening act, Milk Carton Kids were very entertaining with their mixture of self-deprecating humor and low-key music. They are a couple of talented young guys. As for The Punch Brothers, they were truly amazing. All five musicians are extremely talented and each could stand on their own, although they are such a good mix when playing together that they become that rare group of musicians whose blend is some sort of magic. This show will be included in my personal list of "Ten All Time Best Concerts". Great venue as well!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Wide-ranging and restlessly imaginative.” -- The New Yorker
Punch Brothers was formed in 2006 by mandolinist/singer Chris Thile with four other virtuosic musicians: fiddler Gabe Witcher, banjo player Noam Pikelny, bassist Paul Kowert, and guitarist Chris Eldridge. Their first Nonesuch record, Punch, was released in 2008 and combined elements of the band’s many musical interests, including indie rock, folk, jazz, bluegrass, and classical music. In 2009, they began a regular, standing-room-only residency in New York City; these shows ultimately spawned 2010’s Grammy-nominated Antifomatic, which was produced by Jon Brion.
