Ballet brings Balanchine’s holiday magic to Magic City

December 8, 2009

What would the holidays be without a performance of George Balanchine’s Nutcracker, performed by the Alabama Ballet, the premier professional ballet company in the state? You may be one of the community players who take a role as candy canes or baby mice. Or you may be that long-ago daughter, now grown, who is taking your own daughter to the show for the first time this December.

Or you may be just an admirer of our Alabama Ballet, which ranks 16th in the nation for artistic excellence. This performing company and its Royal Academy of Dance are great reasons to love our community!

Alabama Ballet is only one of six companies in the world authorized to perform the Balanchine version of Tschaikovsky’s Nutcracker, complete with choreography, costumes and set to match the production made famous by New York City Ballet. You can find details about upcoming performances and community outreach programs on the Alabama Ballet website.
