Southwest Virginia Ballet presents The Nutcracker
The Nutcracker’s beautiful music, lush scenery, and lavish costumes perfectly complement E.T.A. Hoffmann’s timeless story. Patrons of all ages will have their imaginations sparked as a Christmas tree grows to huge proportions, mice and soldiers battle, and snowflakes whirl through falling snow. Children will especially enjoy seeing candies and sweets from exotic lands come to life, and they will adore the gigantic Mother Ginger as she plays with her many gingerbread children.
SVB's annual production of the Nutcracker is a Roanoke holiday tradition. Featuring a cast of 150 performers that represent over 15 dance schools from the Roanoke Valley and beyond, the ballet continues to delight audiences of all ages year after year.
Choreography: Pedro Szalay after Terri Post & Elie Lazar
Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Adapted from the story: "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" by E. T. A. Hoffmann History
