Presented by Marleen and Harold Forkas, Boca Ballet Theatre’s beloved version of The Nutcracker features world-renowned guest artists, magical sets and sparkling costumes. Enchanting choreography by Co-Artistic Director Dan Guin, paired with a score by Tchaikovsky, brings this magical tale to life with a cast of more than 100 dancers, including American Ballet Theatre stars Sarah Smith and Roman Zhurbin. The dynamic duo awed audiences as the jilted lovers in Boca Ballet Theatre’s Romeo and Juliet in 2007, and they will shine once again in The Nutcracker.
Following matinee performances of The Nutcracker, come and enjoy the Gingerbread Ball, where children are invited onstage after the show to meet Clara, Sugar Plum Fairy, and all the magical characters. Experience the mystery of backstage and admire the costumes and sets up close! Admission to the Gingerbread Ball is $8 per person and includes a goody bag with sweet treats.
Boca Ballet Theatre’s performances of The Nutcracker will return to Olympic Heights Performing Arts Theater, where special pyrotechnics were custom-created for the production to infuse the stage with sparkling magic.
