As has become the norm around the holidays, the Detroit Opera House will see four performances of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker on November 29-December 1.
According to the press release, “BalletMet's production, with larger-than-life characters and narration by Sir Roger Moore, aims "to keep The Nutcracker an entertaining event that is both fresh and rekindles a warm nostalgia," said BalletMet Artistic Director Gerard Charles. BalletMet Columbus of Ohio, renowned for its versatility and innovative repertory, ranks among the nation's largest dance companies, and its Dance Academy ranks among the largest dance-training centers.”
“As always, all matinee performances feature a range of family-friendly activities, including live reindeer before the show, holiday-themed crafts courtesy of Arts and Scraps, a special holiday ice cream compliments of Treat Dreams Bakehouse, and photos with Santa and the Nutcracker. The "Sugar Plum Parade" follows the performance, giving children a special opportunity to meet the dancers on the Detroit Opera House stage. A buffet lunch before matinees will be available for $10.Follow @City_Slang
