We will begin our season with the classic holiday tale,"The Nutcracker", that has been told through the most famous ballet in history for hundreds of years. It is through the reimagining of this story that ballet companies across the nation have brought brilliant innovation and context that continues to inspire and excite new audiences every year. Join us this year, along with guest artists from Ballet Austin, as we explore this story from a fresh perspective. Clara has just turned eighteen and is excited about what her future holds. During a holiday party, her world traveling aunt arrives with a handsome assistant, and Clara is immediately consumed with dreams of joining them on their travels. However, her father has different plans for her future, and when the two face off, Clara is forced to make a choice. If she goes with her aunt she not only gets to see the world, but also be with the love of her life. Sadly, that choice would also take her away from her beloved family. What will Clara choose?
Will the choice tear her family apart or bring them closer together?
Come find out on November 30-December 2 at the Boyd Vance Theater inside the G.W. Carver Museum at 1165 Angelina Street in Austin.
