Dec 10, 2017 - Dec 23, 2017

Steeped in the noble traditions of classical ballet, Ballet Ariel’s The Nutcracker is a delight for audiences of all ages. Directed by Ilena Norton, Oleg Dedogryuk, and Patricia Renzetti, and brilliantly performed by Ballet Ariel’s professional company and school, Tchaikovsky’s famous score is given new life with festive costumes and breathtaking choreography.

Local dance icon, Paul Noel Fiorino will reprise his role as Drosselmeyer, with Jennifer Kuhn as the Sugar Plum Fairy, and Alexandru Glusacov and Oleg Dedogryuk as the Cavalier. Clara journeys with the Prince on a magical adventure of toy soldiers, dancing snowflakes and Sugar Plum fairies.

With its exuberant embrace of an enchanted world, Ballet Ariel’s The Nutcracker defines the season.
