Why See Phoenix Ballet - The Nutcracker?
A Family-Friendly Festive Favorite
The highlight of the Phoenix Ballet's winter season, the critically acclaimed Nutcracker promises a spirit-lifting, festive evening of enchanting dance and soaring music. The ensemble's artistic director Slawomir Wozniak breathes new life into the Yuletide favorite with inventive, exuberant and often acrobatic choreography that injects a sense of fun and a sprinkling of light-hearted humour into the widely-performed ballet, striking a perfect balance between tradition and innovation.
The company welcomes a host of well-recognised special guest dancers to the fold, including 13 year old World Ballet Competition gold medallist Madison Penney and So You Think You Can Dance finalist Tia Wenkman, as well as prodigious students from Arizona's prestigious dance school Master Ballet Academy. Together they'll whisk audiences away to a magical land where toys come to life and the Sugar Plum Fairy and the fearsome Mouse King reside.
Opening night: 14 December 2018
