“CPYB’s George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® has become a tradition for generations of family and friends to celebrate the holidays,” said Darla Hoover, Artistic Director and Balanchine Trust répétiteur. “Year after year audiences are rediscovering the ballet’s many subtleties and finding new nuances. It’s thrilling to watch young children and adults alike become wonderfully engrossed in the happenings on stage.”
The elaborate stage elements unleash imaginations and inspire rapt attention – a Christmas tree grows to staggering heights; a marvelous blizzard of dancers and falling snow sweep across the stage; Mother Ginger provides comedic interludes; and the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier’s grand pas de deux makes hearts flutter!
Maestro Stuart Malina will lead the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra’s live performances of Tchaikovsky’s richly colorful score.
