Ballet Arts Worcester Presents The Nutcracker at Hanover Theatre

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

 

Ballet Arts Worcester is set to present its fifth season of The Nutcracker Ballet at the Hanover Theatre.

This production of the holiday classic is sure to bring festive cheer to audiences young and old, and provide a great start to the holiday season.

"The Nutcracker Ballet at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts is a high-caliber performance in a world-class theatre featuring ballet professionals and rising ballet stars from the Worcester area,” says Jennifer Agbay, Director for Ballet Arts Worcester.  “In addition, we are thrilled to announce presenting sponsor Commerce Bank, and production sponsor Price Chopper Supermarket, for their generous sponsorships.”

The Hanover Theatre is tough to beat as a venue for this renowned masterpiece of a ballet.

Known as one of the most popular ballets of all time, The Nutcracker has a long and storied history. The story first appeared in an 1816 book of short stories by German writer Hoffman.

It later made its ballet debut in 1892 in St. Petersburg, Russia. The story revolves around Clara, a young girl who receives a nutcracker doll as a Christmas gift and then enters a world of make believe where toy soldiers, mischievous mice and dancing snowflakes come to life in the Land of Sweets.

Starring as Clara in Ballet Arts Worcester's production is 16-year old Sturbridge native Meredith Hunter-Mason. The talented young dancer has now been with Ballet Arts Worcester for the past five years.

“Meredith is a testament to the exceptional level of ballet dancers in the Worcester area," Agbay added.

Audiences can enjoy this limited-engagement performance at The Hanover Theatre, November 23 to 26, 2012. Ticket prices range from $24 to $36 and group discounts are available.

Show Information:

Friday, November 23 at7:00 PM
Saturday, November 24 at 2:00 PM & 7:00 PM
Sunday, November 25 at 2:00 PM
Monday, November 26 at 10:00 AM (Special School Performance)
