The evening was very enjoyable. At first, I was concerned that I had brought two people to see this show, which seemed like a grade-school dance recital, even though I expected there would be a lot of little ones. Once the older dancers joined in, we found them AND the little ones to be very entertaining and enchanting. We enjoyed all of them, and especially the Waltz of the Flowers, the Snow Queen and King, and the Grand Pas de Deux. One of my guests had never seen a ballet and was thoroughly enchanted.

Three of us enjoyed it immensely. Each act was well done. I particularly liked the Waltz of Flowers, the Snowflakes and the Grand pas de Deux avec le sugar plum fairy and king. Jennifer Wang who played the Sugar Plum Fairy for the Sunday 7 pm show...continued
City Ballet School once again presents its delightful production of The Nutcracker. The storyline, which is loosely based on the original production by Lew Christensen, has been reworked by a team of very talented choreographers, including Artistic Director Galina Alexandrova (Bolshoi, San Francisco Ballet, and Smuin Ballet), Yuri Zhukov (Kirov, San Francisco Ballet, and Royal Birmingham Ballet), and Isadora Duncan award-winner Svetlana Afanasieva (Stanislovksi Ballet) and Lupe Calzadilla (National Ballet of Cuba).
This year we are extremely pleased and excited to have James Mills, formerly with Smuin Ballet, performing with the school. James performs the part of Sugar Plum Cavalier. The production also features 90 dancers between the ages of 6 and 18 years. What sets City Ballet School’s Nutcracker apart is the fact that the production, with the exception of the lead male role, is performed completely by its own students. The level of these students is extremely high as are the production values.
