December 19, 2015 – The Nutcracker Ballet (The Dance Factory)

NutcrackerWarm memories often begin with holiday traditions, and Tchaikovsky’s most famous ballet, The Nutcracker, is performed annually at Young Auditorium by accomplished dancers from The Dance Factory. This delightful production features talented area youth, gorgeous costumes, lavish backdrops, and talented dancers. The Nutcracker ballet is based on the story “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice” written by E.T.A. Hoffman.
