Based on the original NUTCRACKER, this 45-minute version is a short narrated version of the Nutcracker Ballet, especially designed to educate younger children (K-6) and introduce them to the wonderful world of ballet.  

This exciting version of the ballet was inspired by, and written for, the younger audience by Sierra Nevada Ballet's Artistic Director, Rosine Bena.  Ms. Bena, a professional Ballerina, danced throughout the USA and Europe with the Stuttgart Ballet, the Washington Ballet, and Peninsula Ballet Theater.  Ms. Bena danced the role of the Sugarplum Fairy professionally for twenty-five years.  During this time, she had the opportunity to speak with many young fans about their ballet experience.  Nutcracker is often a child’s first introduction to ballet and Ms. Bena found a way of making this a more personal experience for audience members by including the magical storytelling of what is happening on stage.

 THE PEANUTCRACKER-The Story In A Nutshell, will feature Sierra Nevada Ballet’s professional dancers and apprentices, in addition to dance students from schools in the local community.
