There are now 35 days until Ballet Virginia International’s production of the Nutcracker at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts. We have a total of four shows and two school shows. Currently our Thursday morning school show is almost sold out! The local schools are bused to the Theatre for a two hour performance and really seem to enjoy our production. Let’s not forget the many home schools in the area that attend as well.
Our cast is working very hard and looking good! Our professional guest artists include the Sugar Plum fairy and Cavalier who are dancers currently with Houston Ballet, our Prince is currently with the Atlantic Ballet of Canada. Our Dream Clara is a BVI alumni who danced with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and is now a senior at Radford University. Stephen Gregory will be back as Drosselmeyer and lets not forget my co-director, Janina Michalski Bove as the Grandma! Cornelius Bartlett will make a transition this year from Russian to the Arabian Prince.
BVI’s Nutcracker is sure to be the best in town. Get your tickets now and enjoy ballet with the Symphonicity.
