New England Ballet Holiday performances

New England Ballet Company


New England Ballet Company continues its tradition of winter holiday performances of the holiday favorite, Nutcracker, returning to the stage for the 19th year under the artistic direction of Kenneth Hopkins and Karen Goodman. In this large cast, professionally choreographed production, the audience is transported to a magical place filled with adorable children, marching toy soldiers, a villainous Rat Queen and mischievous mice. Enter the Land of Sweets through a dreamy on-stage snowstorm led by the glamorous Snow Queen, with little angels to light the way. The Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier dance for Clara and the Nutcracker Prince and welcome them into a fantasy world of waltzing flowers, dancing princesses, and Mother Ginger and her precocious children. A wonderful ballet for the entire family, Nutcracker is the perfect way to introduce children to the power and beauty of classical dance. Performances will be at the Parsons Auditorium, 70 West River Street, Milford on Saturday, December 18th at 12:00 p.m. and 4 p.m. and a matinee performance on Sunday, December 19th, at 1:00 p.m. Tickets are $20-$45.
