The Albany Berkshire Ballet performs The Nutcracker at The Egg

Albany Berkshire Ballet (ABB) will present its annual tour of the holiday classic The Nutcracker. The production was choreographed by Artistic Director Madeline Cantarella Culpo. Sets and scenery were created by theater and movie set designer Carl Sprague, a Stockbridge native, and costumes were designed by Rita Watson and Victile Donahue. The Nutcracker will feature local dance students in special children’s roles alongside the professional dancers of the ABB. This year’s company includes dancers from around the United States, as well as International. A holiday favorite, The Nutcracker tells the story of a young girl, Clara, and the magical dream she has one Christmas Eve. Set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music, the story of The Nutcracker follows the adventures of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince as they conquer the Mouse King and embark on magical journey to The Land of Sweets.
