WESTCHESTER BALLET COMPANY: THE NUTCRACKER
Choreography by BETH FRITZ-LOGREA and JEAN LOGREA
Westchester Ballet Company's Nutcracker is a spectacular, enchanting, full-length presentation of the beloved holiday classic featuring a cast of 100 dancers. This sumptuous ballet, set in 1830s Europe, tells the story of young Clara as she travels on a magical journey on Christmas Eve with the fantastical Nutcracker at her side. WBC's production is notable not only for its exquisite choreography, set to Tschaikovsky's beautiful score, but also for its opulent costumes and special effects.
Running time with intermission is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes.
Westchester Ballet Company (WBC) is one of the oldest regional, nonprofit youth ballet companies in the United States. The company's Nutcracker cast is made up of world-class adult guest performers and approximately 100 young dancers from 17 different towns and villages in and around Westchester who are selected each September through open auditions held in Ossining, New York, at Logrea Dance Academy, the official ballet school of WBC. WBC's mission is to shape lives through the power of dance, by creating performance opportunities for promising young dancers, awarding dance scholarships, supporting arts accessibility through affordable ticket pricing, and creating educational and arts enrichment opportunities for the general public throughout the year.
