About the Show
The OCVTS Performing Arts Academy’s Dance Department presents “The Winter Dance Concert: A Reconstruction of The Nutcracker.”
The Nutcracker, first premiering a week before Christmas by Moscow’s Imperial Theatre in 1892, is a classic Christmas story in 2 acts centered on the magical story of Clara and her Nutcracker. The ballet was originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov and the musical score by Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky, which was adapted from the passage of “The Nutcracker & The Mouse King” written by E.T.A. Hoffman. Since then, ballet companies all around the world have performed this holiday tradition, and from the moment the lights dim, audiences are transported to an amazing world of magic and wonder. A rousing snowstorm sends a blizzard of ballerinas across the stage, sweeping the audience to exotic locales in the enchanting Land of Sweets. Please enjoy our reconstructed rendition of The Nutcracker and other holiday selections presented by the Performing Arts Academy Dance Department’s Dance Ensemble.
