What better way to herald the holiday season than with a classical ballet story that warms the heart and delights the senses? GA Metro Dance Theatre (GMDT) is thrilled to announce the much-anticipated holiday classic, The Nutcracker – a magical performance from the company’s 61st season of dance – from November 24th through November 26th, 2017 at the Jennie T. Anderson Theatre in Marietta. Tickets are on sale now at georgiametrodance.tix.com for this production that perennially enchants audiences and inspires holiday spirit among all who attend.
All are invited to the Stahlbaum’s holiday party, where a mischievous magician orchestrates surprises around each corner, and dolls and toy soldiers come to life to battle against giant mice! Then, go on a journey through the snowy Pine Forest to the delectable Kingdom of Sweets, where audiences will meet enchanting characters who entertain with dances from around the world. Make Marietta’s own GMDT and its talented dancers part of your holiday tradition this Thanksgiving and every year with The Nutcracker!
GMDT’s The Nutcracker is a classical ballet featuring 150 local company dancers, ranging in age from seven to eighteen, who train at Georgia Dance Conservatory on the Marietta Square. Professional dancers Raul Peinado and D. Patton White will join the cast of GMDT dancers to bring to life the story of a little girl named Clara who dreams of meeting her prince and going on an enchanted journey through the Kingdom of Sweets. The 2017 performance of The Nutcracker will feature new choreography in Act II, including Chinese, Spanish, Polichinelles, Arabian, and Candy Canes.
