Catskill Ballet Theatre’s “The Nutcracker”

“The Nutcracker” was not a success following its premier in St. Petersburg in 1892, but longevity has been assured for the ballet because of Tchaikovsky’s delightful score, especially the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Now a revered holiday tradition, “The Nutcracker” tells the story of a lavish Christmas party given by the Von Stahlbaum. Catskill Ballet Theatre will perform the ballet in its entirety. Formed in 1981 by Anne Hebard, the Catskill Ballet Theatre is a regional company providing cultural enrichment through the instruction and presentation of classical ballet. Catskill Ballet Theatre was the recipient of Ulster County’s 2010 Cultural Business of the Year Award. “The Nutcracker” will be performed at UPAC in Kingston on Friday, December 9 at 8pm; Saturday, December 10 at 8pm; and Sunday, December 11 at 2pm. $27/$20/$15. www.upac.org.
