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.

Sergey Sidorsky from the National Ballet of Ukraine will be in this year’s production.

Ballet Fedotov

The performances put on by Ballet Fedotov feature both professional dancers and students of the Russian Academy of Ballet Alafaya. More than 1,500 students have passed through the program, toting with them their slippers, leotards, and tutus. There's equipment a-plenty, but talent's the most plentiful resource here. The Academy's alumni have gone on to perform with institutions as diverse as the Corella Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet, and Disney, while current students pirouette through classes and numerous performances per year.
