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 with a well-thrown shoe to the Mouse King’s head, 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, regal fairy queens, and seasonally confused vampires. 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.<p>

Pas De Vie Ballet

Pas De Vie Ballet takes its name from the French for “step of life,” which not only points to a guiding belief in its art form’s vitality, but also in its role in the lives of its dancers. Indeed, both Pas De Vie’s artistic director, Natalia Botha, and its ballet master, Charles Hagan, have devoted their lives to dance. Both earned scholarships to the National Academy of arts, and both worked to become soloists. Today, their non-profit serves as a cultural beacon for the surrounding area, hosting outreach programs for the local youth and demonstrating their students’ skills with annual productions of The Nutcracker.
