PEANUTCRACKER – THE STORY IN A NUTSHELL

December 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

School Show – Not for the public

The traditional holiday story of Clara, the Nutcracker and seven headed Rat King, and the Kingdom of Sweets will be brought to the stage in Sierra Nevada Ballet’s PEANUTCRACKER – THE STORY IN A NUTSHELL. Based on Marius Petipa‘s original ballet “The Nutcracker”, PEANUTCRACKER – THE STORY IN A NUTSHELL is a shorter, 45-minute narrated version that is “designed for families with younger children to introduce them to the wonderful world of ballet,” noted Rosine Bena, Artistic Director of the Sierra Nevada Ballet. Bena wrote and choreographed this traditional holiday show and was awarded a 2015 “Challenge America” grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to present this work. After dancing the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy for 25 years, Ms. Bena discovered that “The Nutcracker” was often a child’s first introduction to ballet and the shorter version, complete with its growing Christmas tree and animated storytelling was perfect for very young children.
