It just doesn’t feel like Christmas until you hear “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.” Renton-based Evergreen City Ballet reimagines the Nutcracker experience with an at-home dance film for all ages, Nutcracker Suites.
The film explores the origin and history of this popular ballet in a unique “docu-dance” film. The production includes inspiration from Artistic Director Bennyroyce Royon’s Filipino cultural heritage.
“Nutcracker Suites” will bring audiences beyond the stage into the Evergreen City Ballet Nutcracker universe with a variety of stories, for a one-of-a-kind show.
Evergreen City Ballet partners with Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra for the Waltz of the Flowers, and Seattle performer Mx. Aleksa Manila will reprise her 2019 role of Mother Ginger. The performance also includes two very special guest artists from New York City Ballet, Georgina Pazcoguin and Alec Knight.
Each week’s edit will feature a different chorus of talented local dance students. See the film any time during each week-long show period.
