‘The Nutcracker’ Returns for the Holidays
November 22nd, 2019
Omaha, NEâ€”One of the most recognized ballets ever choreographed and a holiday tradition the world over, The Nutcracker returns to local stages, performed by none other than American Midwest Ballet. Itâ€™s a story that many audiences know, but still one that can be enjoyed every year. Â
The Nutcracker is by far the companyâ€™s biggest production on the calendar, featuring not just their team of professional dancers, but also ballet students and community membersâ€”over 100, with around 250 costumes between them.
The Nutcracker is a welcomed holiday tradition for both audiences and dancers, and each yearâ€™s performance has something new to look forward to. This season will feature some Indian inspired dance and a piece from Tchaikovskyâ€™s original score that doesnâ€™t always make it in modern productions.
American Midwest Balletâ€™s The Nutcracker opens this Sunday, November 24 at the Iowa Western Arts Center at 2:00pm. The show will continue at the Orpheum Theatre with two performances on December 7 at 2:00pm and 7:30pm and another 2:00pm show on the 8. For more information or tickets, visit AMBallet.org.
