The production was one of the best I have seen of the Nutcracker. The scenery and costumes were beautiful. It was enjoyable to watch both the student dancers and some amazing professional dancers. The only thing was would have made it better would have been a live orchestration instead of recorded music. Our young children were captivated.
Student dancers from Washington area ballet schools perform with Easton Smith and Haley Henderson Smith of Ballet West (straight from their Nutcracker performances at the Kennedy Center), Puanani Brown of American Ballet Theatre, Sam Chester of Carolina Ballet Theatre and other professional guest dancers in this wonderful holiday tradition for all ages. OBT Artistic Director Patricia Berrend was a member of the internationally known Hamburg Ballet and a founding member of the Washington Ballet. As Associate Director of the Washington School of Ballet, Ms. Berrend served for 20 years as Répétiteur for Mary Day's popular The Nutcracker.
