Miami City Ballet. From Dec 14th through Dec 23rd, 2008. Sugar Plum Fairies and Candy Canes dance on a holiday stage this season at two venues in South Florida. A beautifully decorated Christmas tree grows from twelve to thirty feet tall, winter snow flakes fall before your very eyes, and a little Nutcracker doll magically comes alive to rescue a young girl in distress. This is all part of Miami City Ballet's spectacular production of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker.
Like a Broadway spectacular, this production has it all – a cast of more than one hundred, glorious sets and costumes, magical special effects, Tchaikovsky's beautiful music, and talented kids from Miami City Ballet School will dance alongside the Company's internationally acclaimed dancers.
This annual presentation of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker will show at Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami from December 19th through 23rd, and at Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale from Dec 12th through 14th, 2008.
