|The Nutcracker reminds us that the holidays have always been a time of magic and dreams, so what better way to experience that enchantment than by joining us for the classic holiday tradition. This year will mark the Inaugural season of Tampa Bay Triple Threat Theatre’s Nutcracker Ballet. The Nutcracker Ballet started in 1892 and has long been an American holiday tradition. Tampa Bay Triple Threat Theatre is pleased to present The Nutcracker Ballet in its entirety and finally start a holiday tradition of our own. Travel with us to a magical wonderland of a charming childhood storybook fantasy that includes waltzing Snowflakes, adorable children, the far away Kingdom of Sweets, beautiful classical dance, an enhancing Sugar Plum Fairy and her handsome Prince.
Classical Ballet of Tampa, along with promising young dancers from the bay area will have the opportunity to share the stage and perform with Principal Soloists from Dance Alive National Ballet as Tampa Bay Triple Threat Theatre presents The Nutcracker Ballet on December 2 at the University of South Florida’s Theatre I at 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. set to Tchaikovsky’s classic score, and Choreographed by Stanislav Ivanov.
