Ballet Theatre's Nutcracker at The Bushnell Center | Kids Out and About Hartford

Ballet Theatre's Nutcracker at The Bushnell Center

The holiday classic, The Nutcracker ballet, is making a grand return to The Bushnell. Perfect for the whole family! Ballet Theatre Company’s production will feature original choreography by Artistic Director, Stephanie Dattellas, staged to Tchaikovsky's beloved score. The vibrant performance will feature reimagined choreography, dozens of newly hand-sewn costumes, and local historical references woven into the narrative. Audiences can look forward to fresh production designs including a decadent Mother Ginger and three-dimensional, immersive projection. World renowned guest dancers (to be announced soon!) will join BTC’s newly established company artists in residence and local student dancers to perform the starring roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier.
