Event Description

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 2011-2012 Target FamilyFun series with its annual holiday presentation of Dance Theatre in Westchester’s The Colonial Nutcracker on Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 2pm

 

Created especially for families with children ages four to ten, The Colonial Nutcracker sets Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet in wintry colonial Yorktown during the Revolutionary War.   Featuring timeless classics such as “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” to “Waltz of the Snowflakes,” the production features a red-coated mouse army, an enchanted nutcracker prince, and compelling narration that will enhance young viewers’ understanding and enjoyment of this timeless story.  Rose Menes’ delightful staging and choreography, coupled with colorful costumes and Tchaikovsky’s timeless score, will captivate audiences of all ages.
