Home of the River Region's favorite holiday tradition. . . "The Nutcracker"

December 3-5, 2021
The Davis Theatre

“The Nutcracker”, choreographed by Stevan Grebel and set to music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, will thrill the audience with the prodigious dancing of the Youth Ballet Company and students from the school.  With spectacular backdrops, scenery and a growing Christmas tree, this ballet is truly magical!

 

Based on the original storybook written in 1816 by German author, E.T.A.Hoffman, “The Nutcracker” opens with Act I, “The Party Scene”, which takes place on Christmas Eve in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Stahlbaum, with guests that include the mysterious Drosselmeyer, who brings exciting gifts for the children.  The thrilling “Battle Scene” ensues after the clock strikes midnight and all are asleep in the home. The audience will be swept away with “Clara” on her magical journey to the “Kingdom of Snow” and “Land of the Sweets”.  She and the audience will be royally entertained by dancing snowflakes in a fir forest winter wonderland.  In Act II, “Clara” and “The Nutcracker Prince” are fêted by “The Sugar Plum Fairy” and “Her Cavalier” and her entourage, who perform the famous “Nutcracker” divertissements, including “Flowers”, “Spanish”, “Chinese”, “Arabian”, “Candy Canes”, “Mirlitons”, and “Mother Ginger” and her adorable “Polichinelles”.
