The Nutcracker Ballet
Round Top, TX
Round Top Festival Institute will once again present an encore performance of Tchaikovsky's holiday classic, The Nutcracker. This year's production celebrates the 8th annual performance danced by Ovation, a youth ballet company in residency at Dancers Workshop in Austin. The full length ballet will be one show only at the Festival Concert Hall in Round Top on Saturday, December 12, 2015 at 4 pm.
The performance of The Nutcracker will include a cast of 77 dancers ranging from second grade through high school along with guest actor, Chris Ehresman as the mysterious Herr Drosselmeyer. This year's production will include 11 young dancers from the local area. The children hail from Round Top, La Grange, Columbus and Weimar. The local dancers are ballet students at Saltare Studio in La Grange. These dedicated dancers travel to Austin every Saturday to rehearse with Ovation Ballet Company members who are all students at Dancers Workshop.
The ballet includes dancing party guests, menacing rats, soldiers brandishing candy canes, graceful snowflakes, the handsome Nutcracker Prince and the most famous holiday favorite, the Sugar Plum Fairy. Act I includes the addition of a new set piece - a magical grandfather clock which will intrigue and delight.
Tickets for the ballet are $30 for adults and $15 for students. Purchase tickets online or call the office at 979-249-3129. All seating is general admission. Groups of 20 or more who pay for their tickets with one purchase receive a discount. For group discounts, please call the office.
