Montana Ballet: The Nutcracker
December 14th, 2014
Don't miss the first-ever performance in Big Sky of this holiday classic from Montana Ballet, complete with a live chamber ensemble perfomring the music! The performance will start at 4 p.m.
The Nutcracker Ballet is based on the book entitled "The Nutcracker and
the Mouse King" written by E.T.A. Hoffman. The legendary choreographer
Marius Petipa commissioned Tchaikovsky to write the music for the
Nutcracker Ballet in 1891. The following year, the very first
performance of the Nutcracker appeared at the Mariinsky Theatre in
Russia, the home of the Kirov Ballet. In the United States, the first
full-length Nutcracker was choreographed by W. Christensen and performed
by the San Francisco Ballet in 1944. Today the Nutcracker is an annual
holiday tradition, performed by ballet companies large and small all
over the world.
