Ballet Theater Company: The Nutcracker
Ballet Theater Company is thrilled to return to The Bushnell with a refreshed version of a beloved holiday classic.
In an effort to address the lingering cultural appropriation in the 130-year-old ballet, Dattellas has reimagined a new, vibrant, and cheeky Act II featuring magical treat-foods that would wow a 19th-Century young lady in a dreamscape and will delight modern audiences. To make the vision come to life for audiences, Lead Costume Designer Pat Nurnberger will design and hand-sew over seventy costumes to pair with Dattellas’ fresh, original choreography.
BTC is ecstatic to welcome Lauren Lovette, former principal with the NYCB as she returns to perform for a second year as the dazzling Sugar Plum Fairy.
