Last year a childhood dream became a reality; I was finally able to see The Nutcracker. With the wonderful and memorable experience I had, I wanted you to have a chance to enjoy it too. ARTS San Antonio Presents The Nutcracker, Mejia Ballet International. Set to Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, The Nutcracker is, by far, the most widely attended ballet in America. The first American production of the ballet was staged in 1944 by the San Francisco Ballet. Ten years later, the late choreographer George Balanchine introduced his famous production of The Nutcracker at the New York City Ballet, a staging largely responsible for the ballet becoming part of the Christmas tradition in the United States.
Here is a special 20% offer for my readers!
This production of The Nutcracker is choreographed and directed by the founder of Mejia Ballet International, Paul Mejia, a well-recognized name in ballet. Mejia is a former principal dancer under George Balanchine at New York City Ballet. He danced principal roles in many Balanchine ballets. Mejia’s production of The Nutcracker continues the holiday tradition of this popular ballet. Olga Pavlova, Marina Goshko, Andrey Prikhodko and Yevgeni Anfinogenov will dance the principal roles in The Nutcracker. Students from San Antonio Metropolitan Classical Ballet will dance the children’s roles.
