Ballet Hawaii's Nutcracker 2017

Date/Time

Dec 15, 2017 to Dec 17, 2017
07:30 PM until 09:00 PM

Description

Ballet Hawai‘i announces its annual Nutcracker performances for this December, which continue with a unique historical theme. Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet will once again be set in the 1858 Kingdom of Hawai‘i. Four performances are scheduled at Blaisdell Concert Hall, Friday through Sunday, December 15, 16 and 17.

Ballet Hawaii welcomes back guest artists Megan Fairchild and Joaquin DeLuz from New York City Ballet and Lesley Rausch and Lucien Postlewaite from Pacific Northwest Ballet. The impressive cast of over 175 dancers will be accompanied by The Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra.

“We are delighted that Ballet Hawai‘i will once again present Nutcracker with the grandeur and elegance of old Hawai‘i,” said Pamela Taylor Tongg, Ballet Hawai‘i artistic director. “Audiences can enjoy all of the traditional holiday dance performances with historical characterizations of Washington Place resident Mary Dominis and Hawaii’s beloved Queen Lili’uokalani. The ballet still follows the imaginary adventures of a young girl and her nutcracker prince as they battle classic villains and thrill to fantastic experiences across a magical kingdom. But surprises abound with the inclusion of cultural influences present in 1858 Hawai‘i.”

Friday, December 15, at 7:30 p.m.                                                                                                                Saturday, December 16, at 2:00 p.m.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Saturday,December and and 7:30 p.m.                                                                                                                                                                          Sunday, December 17, at 2:00 p.m.
