The Nutcracker Ballet
Maryland Regional Ballet, under the artistic direction of Joyce Morrison, will perform its 35th annual “Nutcracker” this year on December 12th, December 13th and December 14th. Once again the Weinberg stage will become a magical place where a tree grows, mice battle with toy soldiers, snow falls, and dolls come to life making a young girl’s fanciful dream come true.
This year, the Company will welcome guest artists from the New York City Ballet who will dance the roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier. The Company also welcomes the return of Alexander Ritter, former soloist with York City Ballet, Boston Ballet and the Suzanne Farrell Ballet, who will perform the magical role of Dr. Drosselmeyer for the 15th time.
Approximately 65 students from Frederick School of Classical Ballet (www.frederickballet.com) share the stage with these world-renowned artists and parents and local actors comprise the rest of the cast. Please join us for this annual Holiday tradition!
