Maple Youth Ballet presents The Nutcracker A Magical Journey Where Dreams Come True!

 

From the moment the lights dim, you will be transported to a magical place filled with dancing snowflakes, a dashing prince, and Tchaikovsky's majestic score based on one of the world's most beloved ballets. Featuring original choreography by award winning choreographer and Artistic Director Charles Maple, The Maple Youth Ballet's The Nutcracker is a full-length rendition-with-a-twist of E.T.A. Hoffmans time-honored classic which centers around Clara, a young girl who yearns to one day become a professional ballerina. In her dream she grows up and dances with her Nutcracker Prince in a performance at the Kingdom of the Sweets.

 

It’s this new concept – a ballet about ballet and a little girl’s passion to dance – that sets Maple Youth Ballet’s Nutcracker apart from the others. This unparalleled production will entertain audiences by its uplifting surprises and special effects including a Christmas tree that grows to 55 feet and encompasses the entire stage. Featuring more than 80 classically trained dancers from throughout Southern California and a special guest appearance by Brian Waldrep, from American Ballet Theatre’s ABT II, who will dance the Nutcracker Prince – this is a production not to be missed!
