A wonderfully fresh and beautiful version of the Nutcracker from a local production company. The costumes were amazing and the dancers inspired! Favorite pieces included the Arabesque dancers, the Chinese interlude, the Dance of the Snowflakes, and the gorgeous finale (such grace!).
After last year’s nearly sold-out shows, Alameda Civic Ballet’s full-length Nutcracker is back by popular demand, with more than 100 talented performers. Directed and choreographed by Abra Rudisill, this year’s performance features guest artists Meredith Webster and John Michael Schert from Lines Ballet, Carlo Sierras from San Francisco Opera Ballet and others who have performed professionally with the American Ballet Theatre, Ballet Hawaii, Nevada Dance Theater, Oakland Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet and San Francisco Ballet.
Don’t miss the Sugar Plum Parties directly after each performance: Take pictures, get autographs and enjoy sweets with the entire cast! (Party tickets will be available for $7 at the door.)
Founded in February 2003 under the artistic direction of Abra Rudisill, former Prima Ballerina/Ballet Mistress/Teacher of Oakland Ballet, Alameda Civic Ballet is the affiliate performing company of the Alameda Ballet Academy. The goal of the company is to create and present quality and community-accessible ballet performances, while providing young dancers with valuable experience performing alongside professional dancers.
