Dayton's biggest and best holiday performance arts tradition... Dayton Ballet's beloved The Nutcracker.
With new choreography by Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke, new sets by designer Ray Zupp, and new costumes by Lowell Mathwich, the story of little Clara and her adventures reaches a new artistic zenith. The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Neal Gittleman, again takes up residence in the orchestra pit, giving Tchaikovsky's music the full, rich, gorgeous interpretation that it requires.
Where better to enjoy this classic ballet and experience the full depth of this wonderful music than at the Schuster Center for the Performing Arts, one of the top performance halls in the nation?
The elegance, grace and sheer athleticism of Dayton Ballet's core ensemble and star dancers bring the drama to immediate, colorful life. The traditional storyline is greatly enhanced by the imaginative and whimsical beauty of Ray Zupp's set.
If you missed this production last year, don't make the same mistake. If you saw it, you already know you'll want to make it a permanent part of your family's holiday tradition.
