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 and regal fairy queens. This original choreography from Pas de Vie Ballet’s artistic directors Natalia Botha and Charles Hagan puts a graceful new spin on the piece while staying true to the original aesthetic. From the weightless strains of the “Waltz of the Snowflakes” to the haunting, music-box chimes of the “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy,” the music paints a vivid picture before the whole dream ends, as all dreams must.

Pas de Vie Ballet

Pas de Vie Ballet takes its name from the French for "step of life," a phrase that 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, Pas de Vie's artistic director, Natalia Botha, and its ballet master, Charles Hagan, are devoted to dance—both enjoyed professional careers before turning their focus to choreography and instruction. Today, their company shares the joy of classical dance with the Tallahassee community, hosting outreach programs for local youth and staging sparkling productions ranging from short pieces to an annual take on The Nutcracker.
