‘The Nutcracker’ Returns


November 16th, 2018

American Midwest Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker returns for the season, beginning with a performance this Sunday at the Iowa Western Arts Center. It’s a traditional retelling of a holiday favorite through music and dance, set to Tchaikovsky’s iconic score.

The Nutcracker is by far American Midwest Ballet’s largest production of year when adding up cast, crew and set materials.

Preparing for The Nutcracker is always a challenge for the company, but with so many cast members, it is a community effort.

Though performed every year, no two productions of The Nutcracker are identical. It is the same familiar dreamy holiday story, but the company is always reimagining choreography, set design, and dancers’ roles.

American Midwest Ballet’s The Nutcracker opens this Sunday, November 18th at 2:00pm at the Iowa Western Arts Center. The production will continue at the Orpheum Theatre, Saturday and Sunday December 8th and 9th with afternoon and evening showings. For more information and tickets, visit AMBallet.org.
