Let the holiday planning begin! Choreographed by Ballet West Founder Willam Christensen, The Nutcracker will run for 24 matinee and evening performances from December 7 through December 29 at the Capitol Theatre. Evening performances begin at 7:00 p.m., with matinees at 2:00 p.m. There is a special holiday matinee on Christmas Eve at Noon.
Based on the fairy tale by E.T.A. Hoffmann and set to the favorite score by Tschaikovsky, The Nutcracker is a classic ballet in two acts. The story tells of a Christmas party at which little Clara, daughter of the house, receives the gift of a nutcracker from her mysterious uncle, Herr Drosselmeyer. After the party, she falls asleep and dreams of snow castles, sugarplums, and her nutcracker, which has turned into a handsome prince.
Ticket prices range from $18 to $66 and are available at all ArtTix outlets, or at the Capitol Theatre Box Office, 50 West 200 South. Tickets may also be charged by calling 355-ARTS or at www.arttix.org.
