The Brighton Ballet Theater / School of Russian American Ballet presents a holiday performance of “The Nutcracker,” an original ballet based on the timeless story of Hoffmann and Tchaikovsky's classic score.
Choreographed by Edouard Kouchnarev, a new-generation Russian choreographer who has danced and choreographed throughout the world, our production is a charming introduction to ballet and to the classic tale of "The Nutcracker" created especially for children. In spectacular costumes, dancers from the Brighton Ballet Theater's professional and junior companies recreate that magical night when a young girl sees the Nutcracker and other toys come to life in her living room.
BBT's version of "The Nutcracker" departs from the usual winter fairy tale that is seen in American ballet theatres. "Our productions are highly supported by the New York multicultural community," said Irina Roizin, Founder and Executive Director of BBT. "This production will portray the beautiful international diversity of New York with dances representing the countries of Spain, Nigeria, China, India, France, and Russia. The ballet culminates in the Land of Freedom rather than the traditional Land of Sweets."
In addition to featuring professional dancers from some of the leading dance companies, our ballet highlights the achievements of BBT's young dancers, some of them as young as age six. BBT places a major emphasis on creating live stage performance opportunities for its children, and this year - ending spectacular provides a unique opportunity for children to dance alongside professional dancers. Both young dancers and young audiences will delight in this updated classic.
