The Grand Rapids Ballet Company celebrates its 40th season by continuing to combine classic music, elaborate sets, and enthralling dance during lavish productions of beloved ballets. Tchaikovsky’s Christmas classic, The Nutcracker, weaves a magical tale of evil rats, magical princes, and sugar-plum fairies, as told through dazzling choreography and heckling asides from balcony-imprisoned puppets. The Grand Rapids Symphony proffers aural accompaniment, playing such seasonal standards as Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Trepak, and Waltz of the Flowers. All performances take place amid the intimate elegance of DeVos Performance Hall. The recently renovated theater house boasts entry paths marked with colored lighting, allowing patrons to easily find their seats and land their remote-controlled planes prior to the show.
