"Vermont Ballet Theater is returning for its eighth season with their luxurious production of The Nutcracker ballet. Now performing exclusively at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in Burlington, it has quickly become a winter holiday tradition for Vermont families. All ages will be enthralled with VBTâ€™s Nutcracker, from the spectacular start to the resounding conclusion, with VBT company director Alexander Nagibaâ€™s stellar choreography set to Tchaikovskyâ€™s beloved score and performed by VBTâ€™s extraordinary dancers and special guest artist Samuel Wilson of the Dance Theatre of Harlem, in New York City. Follow the delightful adventures of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince as they conquer the evil Mouse King and travel on a mystical journey to The Land of Sweets where the enchanting Sugarplum Fairy reigns. Mice filching Christmas gifts, snowflakes swirling in dreamy white tutus, dolls spinning like tops, a fantasy world of dancersâ€”from a Christmas tree that grows to tower over Clara and the mysterious Herr Drosselmeyer to the captivating ballerinas, VBTâ€™s Nutcracker will thrill one and all.
