The Nutcracker - 75th Anniversary

America’s First Nutcracker. December 7-26 In 1944, critics were stunned when Christensen staged the first full-length Nutcracker in America. “We can’t understand why a vehicle of such fantastic beauty and originality would not be produced in its entirety in this country until now,” reported the Sacramento Union. It was produced on a shoestring budget, but captivated a nation. Now, during this momentous year and following a $3-million new production, see the original choreography, just as Mr. C intended it – and only at Ballet West. 

Choreography: Willam Christensen Composer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Giselle

One of the most beloved romantic ballets of all time, The Noorda Center and the Barbara Barrington-Jones Family Foundation are proud to present this acclaimed production as part of our inaugural season. Since its Paris premiere in 1841, Giselle has been an instant triumph with audiences. A love story, a ghost story, and a tale of forgiveness from beyond the grave, Giselle is about a peasant girl who falls in love with a nobleman, not knowing he is betrothed to another. When she finds out the truth, she goes mad and dies, only to become one of the Wilis — ghostly women who have been betrayed and must spend eternity haunting men. See why Giselle remains one of the most enduring masterpieces in the balletic canon with this ethereal production reconceived by Artistic Director Adam Sklute.
