The Nutcracker (Winslett/ Tchaikovsky)
Richmond Ballet’s beloved holiday tradition is set to come alive in Norfolk for the fifth consecutive year, as Stoner Winslett’s full-length The Nutcracker will be performed December 1 – 3, 2017, at Chrysler Hall, the premiere performing arts venue in the Hampton Roads area. Heralded as “one of the country’s most perfect [Nutcracker productions]” by The New York Times, The Nutcracker will feature nearly 90 local ballet students from over 32 different Hampton Roads area and North Carolina dance schools, who will have the opportunity to perform alongside the professional dancers of Richmond Ballet. Peter Tchaikovsky’s famous score will be brought to life by the Virginia Symphony Orchestra for all four performances.
Join the Russian Bear, Chinese Dragon, and Mouse King as they bring to life the magic of the holidays with Richmond Ballet’s Professional Company Dancers and students from Hampton Roads-area dance schools and the School of Richmond Ballet.
