The Highlight Of Ballet Pensacola's Festive Season
Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year in the company of Ballet Pensacola and their hotly anticipated performance of The Nutcracker! Its sublime marriage of Tchaikovsky's sweeping score, breathtaking choreography, dazzling costumes, elaborate stage design and mesmerising spectacle is enough to melt even the scroogiest of attendees' hearts, making it the perfect family-friendly outing and top ticket of the company's festive calendar!
An ensemble of over 125 dancers (made up of the ballet's professional artists and talented younger students) bring E.T. Hoffman's enchanting story to life on the stage. The adventure follows young heroine Clara and opens with a party scene in which she is gifted a Nutcracker doll. Towards the end of Act 1, the doll comes to life in a magical dream sequence that whisks Clara and her Nutcracker Prince to the faraway realm where the Sugar Plum fairy, the fearsome Mouse King and untold adventure await.
