Although BNC is known for their edgy and contemporary style, the company is excited to perform a classical rendition of "The Nutcracker," complete with both professional members of the company as well as students from the school.

Following the original storyline, and set to Tchaikovsky's familiar score, "The Nutcracker" will be the perfect preparation for the coming Christmas week. Set in 1800's Germany, the plot follows a little girl named Clara, who receives a beautiful Nutcracker from her mysterious Uncle Drosslemeyer on Christmas Eve. During the night, Clara goes to check on her beloved nutcracker, only to be surrounded by giant mice. A magical battle begins between toy soldiers and the mice, when Drosslemeyer appears, makes the nutcracker life size, and the battle concludes with the nutcracker winning the fight and transforming into a handsome prince.  The first act concludes with Clara and the nutcracker making their way through the falling snow into the Kingdom of Sweets, where the nutcracker resides.

The second act opens with angels welcoming Clara and the Nutcracker, and they are both greeted by the Sugar Plum Fairy. Many guests from all over the Kingdom of the Sweets come and dance for Clara and the Nutcracker, with the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier finishing off the fantastic performance.

After the performance, children are invited on stage to learn some steps from company members, and meet the cast of the show.

Don't miss this opportunity to move you fully into the holiday spirit!
