Don’t miss the Detroit premiere of the Cincinnati Ballet’s original, yet tradition-honoring, production of The Nutcracker. Conducted by Carmon DeLeone and the artistic direction by Victoria Morgan, performances are Nov. 24 and 25, at the Detroit Opera House.
Details from Michigan Opera Theatre:
The elaborate scenery, whimsical stage effects and awe-inspiring acrobatics fill the ballet with what the Washington Post described “with a sense of humor, love and wonder that pulls the affair together.” Featuring the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra, this is Detroit’s original and only live Nutcracker — the way Tchaikovsky intended! Matinées include fun family activities before the performance.
