Vermont Ballet Theater is returning for its thirteenth 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 Christmas tradition for Vermont families.
All ages will be enthralled with VBT’s Nutcracker, from the spectacular start to the resounding conclusion, with VBT company director Alexander Nagiba’s stellar choreography set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score and performed by VBT’s extraordinary dancers and special guest artist Samuel Wilson of Washington, DC, returning to perform as our Cavalier.
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 dancers—from a Christmas tree that grows higher than ever, towering over Clara and the mysterious Herr Drosselmeyer, to the captivating ballerinas, VBT’s Nutcracker will thrill one and all.
