The Nutcracker Ballet
Coming to you on December 14th (2pm & 7pm) and 15th (2pm) are three performances from the Hyde Park School of Dances rendition of the ballet, The Nutcracker. Led by the cutest little lest dancers at the school, they will perform a pre-ballet holiday show before the epic main event takes stage.
The first edition of The Nutcracker ballet was held way back in 1892. In its early days, it did not catch on with audiences, however that all changed in the 1960’s when the ballet was performed around the USA during the festive season. Since then the ballet has gone global and performed by hundreds of ballets every festive season around the world.
Hyde Park School of Dance
The team at the Hyde Park School of Dance is putting in long hours in the lead up to the performances. With the role of Clara hotly contested every year, the acting, singing and overall performance of the ballet should be one of the best you will ever see!
Something unique about The Nutcracker ballet is that everyone’s interpretation is different. While the original ballet featured children and adults, it is not uncommon to see adults play the role of children and vice-versa.
This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Hyde Park School of Dance, and their ongoing relationship with the University of Chicago will ensure that this years edition will be the best one yet!
