The sets and costumes for this performance were handmade and designed by the world-renowned European stage designer Dorin Gal. The performance will feature internationally acclaimed guest dancers along with local talent and the Central Florida Ballet Company.
The “Nutcracker” ballet is a classic holiday tradition performed all over the world. The story is based on a fairytale in which the Nutcracker doll comes to life as an enchanted prince who saves the pretty young maiden Maria, from distress. Prince “Nikita” then takes her through a magical journey to his kingdom “The Land of Sweets” where they are greeted by the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier. The Prince tells them about their daring battle with the army of mice and she rewards them with a celebration of dances from all around the world.
