Watch A Stunning Holiday Performance By The American Contemporary Ballet

By Malia Wooten

Why just see the Nutcracker when you can live it?

There is no place more secret or fascinating than childhood – especially for those of us who’ve left it behind. This December, American Contemporary Ballet offers re-entry through a magical door in the city to a mysterious holiday dream world.

In ACB’s extraordinary immersive staging of The Nutcracker Suite, guests are seated just a few feet away from the dancers!

Unlike most traditional ballet productions, the audience is invited into the ballet’s first act – celebrating with giant live dolls, skaters, and other characters from Tchaikovsky’s beautiful score is performed live, making the show all the more enthralling!the perspective of being inside a magical snow globe.

The ballet runs for about an hour, making it the perfect activity for families with children (or a group of jolly friends) — as do a series of odd and humorous surprises! After the performance, guests can linger in the Land of Sweets and meet all the dancers from the show at a reception with live music.
