Go behind the scenes with conductor Devin Patrick Hughes as we take a historical, musical, and cultural tour through one of the greatest works of art of the 19th century, the Nutcracker!
Who did Tchaikovsky collaborate with?
What were some of his inspirations to write the Nutcracker?
Did Tchaikovsky enjoy writing the Nutcracker?
How did he work with the choreographer?
Along with keeping most ballet companies alive by selling out houses for over a century, Tchaikovsky’s music and its ability to bring a story to life will forever ignite out imaginations and creativity during the holidays and beyond.
The Nutcracker becomes one of the sounds, smells and tastes of our holiday spirit and the solstice, along with the season of renewal, and the affirmation that life can be exactly what you create it to be.
