The Nutcracker is at The Lerner Theatre This Weekend

Nov 21, 2018

The Aurinko Ballet invites you to view The Nutcracker... the classic Christmas tale from a unique perspective.  Imagine a different picture - one that we face every day:  busy streets bustling with shoppers talking on their cell phones, joggers hurrying from one place to the next, and, in the midst of the chaos, a girl left homeless and destitute on the bitter winter streets.  She cries out for compassion and love but is met with indifferent, wintry glares.  This is the opening of The Nutcracker as choreographed by Gregory Hancock, the story follows Klara in her magical pursuit of a family, and in doing so, helps to show the true meaning of Christmas.

On Sunday, the twenty-fifth, The Nutcracker Tea is where little princes and princesses will be treated to a fairytale experience with the dancers from the show and sweets and treats.  For more information on show and tea tickets click here.
