This year marks Canyon Concert Ballet's "The Nutcracker"! With a dazzling score by Tchaikovsky performed by the Fort Collins
Symphony Orchestra, this is a rare chance to see a classical ballet accompanied by a full orchestra in Fort Collins. This iconic holiday story is sure to please
audiences of all ages with mystery, battles, and beautiful ballerinas in sparkling tutus.
"The Nutcracker" follows a young girl, Clara, through her adventures on
Christmas Eve during a party visited by her mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer. Life size dolls and toy soldiers create an evening that grows even more fantastical as she
falls asleep and witnesses toy soldiers battling mice and rats. A journey through the Land of Snow leads her to a world led by the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier, and
filled with dancing candies and sweets performing for her and her soldier prince.
Now a Fort Collins and Northern Colorado Tradition, this year is sure to please, with
a Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier danced by recently retired dancers from Boston Ballet. Canyon Concert Ballet Company and School Students are also featured in this cast of
over 120 performers. Performed at The Lincoln Center, Fort Collins.
