The Nutcracker Arrives With the Festive Season

The holiday season is always associated with centuries long traditions like Christmas carols, Santa Claus, mistletoe and of course, colorful presents stacked under the Christmas tree. In the world of performing arts and entertainment, holiday season resonates with the stunning performance by The Rockettes, a magical presentation of Elf: The Musical and the all-time favorite ballet, The Nutcracker.

Every year, just when the leaves change their color to the autumn gold and rust, ballet companies and production companies announce their run of Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet. The Nutcracker has become a holiday tradition at the Dayton Ballet that has entered its 80th year of inception. 

Featuring a mega ensemble cast, new sets and stunning choreography, Dayton Ballet’s The Nutcracker is handsomely traditional. The ballet company’s core performers and star dancers bring merriment and a lot of colors to the stage. The Nutcracker will run through from December 13 till 23 at the Mead Theatre at Schuster Performing Arts Center, already prompting huge sales of Dayton Ballet The Nutcracker tickets.

The Nutcracker – Something Old, Something New

Classics like The Nutcracker cant astray from their original plot or concept, but it’s also equally important to keep the freshness alive. Dayton Ballet has mounted a new production for the latest season, as the set designer Ray Zupp and the resident costume guru Lowell Mathwich revamp the style element.

Presenting a blend of classic and new, Karen Russo Burke – the Artistic Director has given the show a Dayton spin. Drawing from the culture and richness of Dayton’s history, costumes and dances are a representation of the area. The Land of Sweets act has also been elaborated, complete with colorful costumes and delights like the Turkish Delight, Dark Spanish Chocolate, Sugar Candy Violets, Gingerbread Boys and Girls, and Ribbon Candy.

The Traditional Gathering

The curtain rises on a glittering Christmas tree at the Stahlbaum’s residence. The stage is full of laughing children including a young Clara who waits in anticipation for her favorite uncle. After all, he always brings her the best gift. As she opens a nutcracker from him, Clara gracefully glides and leaps around the stage, showing her excitement for the toy. The spirited duet that also features the rest of the family, guests and kids ends dramatically with the nutcracker breaking.

Soon the audience is taken into Clara’s dream that includes the Mouse King, Snow Queen and the soldiers of the nutcracker. This act bursts with energy, featuring the fight between the nutcracker prince and the mice army.

The Kingdom of Sweets is a sight to behold. Colorful costumes, beautiful choreography and the endearing Sugar Plum Fairy showing off her elegance. Presenting dance forms from various ethnicities including Russia, Spain and China, every performer shines in their roles.

Dayton Ballet’s The Nutcracker is a lavish Christmas spectacle that impresses with comedic elements, ingenious twists and turns and incredible techniques. Make sure you catch the production when it hits the stage in December.
