Ballet Pensacola brings the wildly popular holiday favorite, The Nutcracker to the Pensacola Saenger Theatre this December. The family classic, with music by composer Peter Tchaikovsky, tells the story of young girl, Clara, who together with the Nutcracker Prince, defeat the evil Mouse King. The Sugar Plum fairies host a celebration in their honor. More than 100 children from the Ballet Pensacola Academy portray characters in this magnificent mainstage production which treats the audience to stunning costumes and lavish set design.
Artistic Director Darren McIntyre uses his well-honed, imaginative choreography skills to bring The Nutcracker to life. Ballet Pensacola’s Principal Dancers Hannah Holtsclaw and Juan Arango will delight audiences with their artistic and technical ballet acumen as they portray the characters of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince.
McIntyre has assembled the largest Ballet Pensacola company ever, featuring twenty professional dancers from around the world. Audiences can experience the new company in The Nutcracker from December 16-18, 2022.
