Ballet Nebraska’s The Nutcracker

Based on a novel by 19th-century romantic fabulist E.T.A. Hoffman, The Nutcracker weaves a magical tale of holiday adventure around one of the most recognizable scores in the ballet repertoire. It begins when young Clara receives a nutcracker from her godfather, a wizardly toymaker named Drosselmeyer. Sneaking downstairs to see the toy after everyone else has gone to bed, she suddenly finds herself caught in the middle of a pitched battle between the toys and an army of mice. After saving the nutcracker, Clara and her now-living prince venture into the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets to celebrate. Throughout their adventures, Tchaikovsky’s dazzling inventiveness propels the dances of nimble flowers and regal fairy queens. The “Waltz of the Snowflakes” floats weightlessly above the angelic voices of a youth choir, whereas the “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy” tiptoes to the haunting, music-box chimes of a celesta. A medley of exotic national dances—including a Spanish bolero and Russian Trepak—add to the phantasmagoric celebration before the whole dream ends, as all dreams must.

Ballet Nebraska puts their own graceful spin on the seasonal classic. Soloists and members of the corps don the candy-coated garb of the Sugarplum Fairy and the smart uniforms of toy soldiers, but new characters also populate the festive fantasy. The Mouse King has been transformed into a tough Queen, the lilting “Dance of the Reed Flutes” now features a herd of lambs and a shepherdess, and Clara stops by the North Pole to meet a surprisingly nimble Santa Claus.<p>

Ballet Nebraska

As the only professional dance company of its kind in the region, Ballet Nebraska takes its mission to entertain and educate seriously. The company performs seasons of classic works and new favorites, pirouetting through The Nutcracker and mixed-repertory programs at area theaters and on tour. But the ballet’s greatest contribution to the community might be its education and outreach programs. The artists frequently host charity benefits, stage productions for students, and hold workshops on storytelling through movement at local libraries, where silent storytelling is a must.
