The Nutcracker

December 12-13, 2015

Experience the magic of one of Wilmington’s oldest holiday traditions, the Nutcracker at the Playhouse on Rodney Square in the historic Hotel du Pont. Since 1967, Wilmington Ballet Academy of the Dance has presented this professional-quality production of the Nutcracker to generations of Delaware residents and visitors from the surrounding area. This family-friendly show takes the audience on the magical journey of young Clara and her Nutcracker prince from her festive family holiday party through a suspenseful but ultimately victorious battle against the evil Mouse King and his mouse army, and finally to the enchanting Land of Sweets where the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier reign. The Nutcracker features Joffrey Ballet principal dancers Victoria Jaiani as the Sugar Plum Fairy and Temur Suluashvili as her Cavalier, performing with the Wilmington Ballet Academy of the Dance Junior Company , the Metropolitan Ballet Academy, the Wilmington Ballet orchestra and chorus, and a guest performance by the Voloshky Ukrainian Dance Ensemble. Shows are Dec. 12, 2015 2pm & 7pm and Dec. 13, 2015 2 pm and 6 pm. For more info, visit:
