The Nutcracker featuring The Shenandoah Ballet Company

 
Clifton Forge, VA (Nov. 27, 2022) - The Shenandoah Ballet, directed by Missy Belcher Floyd, returns to delight the entire family with “The Nutcracker”. “The Nutcracker”, appearing on The Historic Masonic Theatre’s stage, is available for two performances at the Theatre. The first performance is Saturday, December 10 at 7:00 p.m. The second is Sunday, December 11 for a 3:00 p.m. matinee.

One of the most popular performances of past seasons, the ballet is based on the E.T.A. Hoffman tale, The Nutcracker and the King of Mice. Although the performance seen on stage today differs in detail from the original story, the basic plot remains the same. Clara dreams of her beloved Nutcracker winning the battle against the Mouse King, journeys through the land of the Snow Queen and her King, and arrives in the Land of Sweets and the Sugar Plum Fairy.

The ballet, a Christmas classic, is set to the timeless Tchaikovsky score, and was first performed in 1892 by the Mariinsky Theatre, home to the Kirov Ballet.

Tickets for “The Nutcracker” may be purchased online at www.historicmasonictheatre.com, or may be purchased by calling the Theatre Box Office at 540-862-5655.
