Experience the Magical Tradition of The Nutcracker
December 1 - 2, 20176693 Raleigh Street, Westminster, CO
This Christmas, treat yourself to a magical evening with Clara and the Nutcracker as Littleton Youth Ballet and Littleton Ballet Academy cast a spell over you and your entire family with its captivating production of The Nutcracker. Featuring two casts of over 170 children, pre-professional dancers, and guest artists, this delightful ballet will transport you to a simpler time and an enchanting place, where snowflakes dance, nutcrackers turn into princes, and wishes really do come true!
Littleton Youth Ballet’s production is a fully professional production with gorgeous sets and backdrops, beautiful costumes, and will captivate the hearts of all ages as they travel with young Clara in her fanciful dream to the Land of Sweets. The production is set in Littleton in the early 1900’s and includes subtle changes every year in choreography, set design, and costuming.
Students train year-round at Littleton Ballet Academy in order to participate in the following year’s production of The Nutcracker. There is a progression in parts each year as the youngest dancers advance from wee mice and little angels, to candy canes and clowns, to snowflakes and flowers, and finally to leading roles such as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Snow Queen, and the Dew Drop Fairy. Some of the dancers in the production have performed in every Nutcracker performance Littleton Youth Ballet has presented.
Colorado Ballet soloist Francisco Estevez and a female guest artist to be announced will be performing the roles of Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier with LYB. The guest artists will be performing on Friday and Saturday evenings.
