CELEBRATE THE WONDER AND MAGIC OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH SANDY’S OWN MOUNTAIN WEST BALLET AS IT PRESENTS THE TIMELESS CLASSIC THE NUTCRACKER
On opening night, the costumes are exquisite and hair and make-up are detailed to perfection. The lights dim, the curtain rises and the music sparks excitement, as the familiar notes fill the air. Both dancers and audiences delight in anticipation of the upcoming production of Mountain West Ballet’s 26th performance of The Nutcracker.
Mountain West Ballet is Sandy City’s community-based, non-profit ballet company. With dancers representing over 25 dance schools, colleges and universities throughout Utah, this community ballet will perform the tale of Clara and her handsome nutcracker prince come to life.
Complete with all the captivating charm The Nutcracker has offered audiences for generations, this special production will be performed December 10 – 20, 2010 at the Theater at Mount Jordan (9360 S. 300 E.) in Sandy. Friday, Saturday and Monday evening performances begin at 7:30 p.m., with Saturday matinee performances beginning at 2:00 p.m.
Sandy City Mayor Tom Dolan notes that, “Mountain West Ballet’s celebration of its 26th annual production of The Nutcracker is a gesture of the community’s commitment to our youth and the arts. We hope this tradition continues for years to come.”
