Media City Ballet presents a lavish new production of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, featuring award-winning dancers, dazzling magical illusions and special effects by guest artist Craig Dickens. Aerialists performing daring feats, and singers from the Taft High School Vocal Ensemble, under the direction of Tom Pease, further embellish the fantasy.
Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet is about a young girl, Clara, who is given a Nutcracker for Christmas by her godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. But this is no ordinary Nutcracker, as Clara learns that very night. After a great battle with the Mouse King, the Nutcracker turns into a Prince. He takes Clara on a magical journey through the Land of the Snow to the Kingdom of the Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy honors the couple with entertainment from around the world.
Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography and direction by Media City Ballet Artistic Director Natasha Middleton
Produced by award-winning television and theatre actress Elmarie Wendel
