The ballet is also well staged and filmed with remote audiences in mind. Gracie Holway, who hails from MI, will dance the Sugar Plum Fairy, among other roles, and Jessica Gadzinski will perform the role of the Arabian Princess and Dew Drop.

Backed by the Columbia Festival Orchestra, conducted by Neil Casey, and St. Peter's Catholic School's choir, Capella Pueri, this "Nutcracker" productionis based closely on the linear notes created by 19th-century choreographers Lev Ivanov and Ivan Petipa, who worked in collaboration with composer Tschaikovsky. The ballet premiered in Russian Federation in December 1892.

The artistic director of Ballet San Antonio said the audience will enjoy better dancing and choreography than ever, as he has transformed some of the magical scenes into a more exciting and hard ballet.

A holiday sugarplum will return to the Batavia Fine Arts Centre with "The Fox Valley Nutcracker" presented by the nonprofit Fox Valley Ballet at 2 and 7 p.m. November 25 and 2 p.m. November 26.

"I didn't do these for the sake of being 'different, ' though", he explained.

For instance, his Uncle Drosselmeyer is very different from the traditional one; and, the way he's woven into the story is very different. Another departure from tradition are the Dolls. "Please don't drop the nutcracker, '" Whitney said.

MIDDLETOWN - In its 16th year at Mohegan Sun and in its 56th year exposing Connecticut's young audiences and families to its renown Christmas classic, Albano's "Nutcracker" is scheduled for an ambitious 2017 holiday entertainment season.

The Nutcracker comes to life in this magnificent ballet comprised of handsome sets, dazzling costumes and more than 80 dancers on stage.

"Ultimately, my goal is to make the girls look good", said Strand, who is returning to classical dance for the production after concentrating on acting and modeling. I'm honored, grateful and blessed to be a part of this magnificent production.

Showing Dec. 15-24, the production created and staged by director/choreographer, Mark Erickson, is filled with magic, pageantry, lovely dancing, elegant costumes and a story. She revealed that her favorite part to play was the Arabian.

Sharing the role of Clara is Reece Domingue, 15, of Denton.

Shirley Tang will be performing as the Sugar Plum Fairy for the Huntington Beach Academy of Dance's Ballet Etudes production of the "Nutcracker".

Evan Strand, 29, of Huntington Beach, has taken on the main male role as the principal dance partner with Clara and the Sugar Plum Fairy, in the timeless Tchaikovsy-scored holiday ballet classic. She's a third-generation participant; her grandmother sews costumes and her mother, Jennifer, is on the administrative team behind the scenes. "I dance as a form of expression", she said. "Last year, 2016, my dream of playing the role of Clara came true".

"The role is very challenging", Adams said.
