Ballet Ariel’s The Nutcracker Suite is a one act performance, the perfect family getaway during this holiday season, celebrating the magical journey of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince. An array of treats from around the world come together in a delightful celebration to honor the brave Clara with chocolate from Spain, coffee from Arabia, tea from China and candy canes from Russia.
A stellar cast, featuring Colorado Ballet guest artist Melissa Zoebisch as Clara and Alexandru Glusacov as the Nutcracker Prince, performs to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score. Special guest artist and Denver dance legend, Paul Noel Fiorino, will return, once again, as Drosselmeyer.
Known for its beautiful and imaginative interpretation of this holiday classic, Ballet Ariel’s professional company production of The Nutcracker Suite is shorter than the full production with no intermission, yet retains the spirit of the season, incomparable choreography and the same outstanding artistry in which audiences delight. Directed by Ilena Norton and Oleg Dedogryuk, Ballet Ariel’s The Nutcracker Suite once again brings joy to the holidays.
Ballet Ariel has converted our popular holiday gift tables into virtual packages which can be purchased at two levels that include the virtual link and a special gift basket of holiday surprises to complement the performance. The small package includes a Nutcracker Christmas tree ornament, one other Christmas tree ornament and other small holiday crafts and candies. The larger package includes a small decorative Nutcracker, two other Christmas tree ornaments, a children’s tiara, and other small holiday crafts and candies.
