What You'll Get
Though now commonplace, acting was condemned in colonial times as “public lying,” with offenders being yanked off the streets with novelty-sized shepherd’s crooks. Embrace vaudevillainy with today’s deal: for $35, you get one mini season pass to the Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre, which performs at the River Center Theatre of Performing Arts (a $71 value). This deal is valid for orchestra seating in rows S–Y and includes admission to the following two performances:
- The Nutcracker, A Tale from the Bayou on Sunday, December 18, at 6 p.m.
- From This Pointe On… on Thursday, April 19, at 7:30 p.m.
Since 1960, Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre has dazzled theatergoers with colorful dance series and performances amplified by guest artists. The annual production of The Nutcracker, A Tale from the Bayou triumphantly announces the arrival of the holiday season, mesmerizing viewers of all ages with a unique interpretation of the classic tale. Backed by the whimsical measures and dramatic journal readings of the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra, The Nutcracker resurrects 19th-century Louisiana by spotlighting local landmarks amid the choreographed twirling of classical and modern dances. Meanwhile, From This Pointe On… ushers in springtime by extracting scenes from Swan Lake and fusing the historic ballet with modern adaptations such as contemporary dance and sets constructed from two-way pagers.
