This holiday season the Holt Ballet Conservatory and the Miners Foundry Cultural Center present “Clara and The Nutcracker”, Yelena Holt’s retelling of the classic holiday story “The Nutcracker Suite” by E.T.A. Hoffmann, featuring choreography by Royal Ballet’s famous choreographer Marius Petipa.   The evening of dazzling dance showcases an array of dancers, from youngsters making their stage debut as dancers to professional guest artists, and all levels in between. Holt’s tale of The Nutcracker follows the title character of Clara, whose Christmas present of a toy nutcracker solider inspires a magical journey to a fantastical world of magical delights. These beloved scenes are set against the beautiful backdrop of Tchaikovsky’s music, plus colorful costumes and a spectacular set that transports the audience through time.
