The Deal

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. 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. The St. George Theatre’s production of the performance will feature special guest solos from Rebecca Krohn & Ask la Cour, Principal dancers from New York City Ballet.

Vicky Simegiatos Dance Company

Former students of Vicky Simegiatos Dance Company have gone on to perform with some of the city's finest dance companies—a trait they have in common with the company's founder and namesake. Discovered by the directors of American Ballet Theatre during a trip to Greece, Simegiatos traveled to the United States to join the company, eventually leaving the professional ballet world behind to raise a family in Brooklyn. But the dancing bug never really left her. In the early '70s she founded what is today named the Vicky Simegiatos Performance Arts Center to teach young twirlers throughout the neighborhood Balachine-technique ballet, Greek dancing, and how to crack walnuts with their toe muscles.
