It’s very important to me that my kids will be familiar with the arts and culture and so I try to expose them to museums and classical music when I can. The ballet is something I personally love but not many young children can sit through an entire show that doesn’t involve Dora and loud upbeat music. The Colonial Nutcracker ballet is playing at Brooklyn College on December 16th and is a production especially geared towards children ages 4-10. (Read more after the jump)
The Colonial Nutcracker sets Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet in wintry colonial Yorktown during the Revolutionary War. The production features classics such as “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” and “Waltz of the Snowflakes,” 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 enduring score, will captivate audiences of all ages.
