Visions of Sugar Plum Fairies and twinkled-toed ballerinas greet the audience in this perennial holiday favorite of “The Nutcracker,” at the Florence Gould Hall on Dec. 14, 15, and 16.
The ballet dances to Tchaikovsky’s score and is set in Art Nouveau style, circa 1907.
Clockwork imps and luminous owls fly above the audience, mice dressed in polka dots, and dancers dancing with chopsticks, entertain and delight the audience in this re-imagined classic that bursts with excitement.
“The Nutcracker,” Dec. 14, 6 pm; Dec. 15, 11 am, 1 pm, and 3:30 pm; and Dec. 16, 11 am, 1 pm, and 3:30 pm. Tickets are $27, $15 children. Suitable for all ages.
