A spectacle of beauty, human athleticism and magical delights, the “NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet” includes unique elements in telling the traditional holiday tale. Set in a beautiful Victorian capital from the past, the city’s sparkling skyline dazzles the stage. European folk characters Father Christmas and the Snow Maiden escort Clara and the Nutcracker Prince to their dream world in Act II. Finally, the “Dove of Peace,” exclusive to “NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet,” welcomes the couple to the “Land of Peace and Harmony” (traditionally called “The Land of Sweets”). The “Dove of Peace” was inspired by the performances of Stanislov Vlasov, former Bolshoi Ballet dancer and choreographer/ballet master of “NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet’s” inaugural 1993 North American tour, and partner Lilia Sabitova, People’s Artist.
Kirkland Fine Arts Center is pleased to bring this magical ballet back to the stage. Find out more at millikin.edu/nutcracker.
