Bristol Ballet presents The Nutcracker
Visions of Sugar Plums... and Nutcrackers and Rat Kings! The mighty battle between the mice and soldiers that brings Clara’s dream to life begins right here at the Paramount Center for the Arts with Bristol Ballet’s full length production of this popular holiday classic. Eighteen local company dancers, 35 students from Bristol Ballet, 20 community members, and three professional guest artists make up the cast for this production. Guest artists Erin Ginn (originally from Kingsport Tennessee) and Israel Rodriquez (who most recently was the Prince in Bristol Ballet’s “Cinderella” in May 2016) return to Bristol Ballet to perform as The Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier/Nutcracker, and local thespian and Head Football Coach Mike Locke returns as Drossylmeyer. Full of beautiful costumes and scenery, breathtaking music, and great dancing, this is a show you’ll love to see.
