LAST CHANCE: The Nutcracker
The fantasy, the glamour, the season’s final performances.
Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 22-23
Tulsa Ballet’s dazzling pageant of magic and splendor continues its run at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center’s Chapman Music Hall, but not for long. The Nutcracker, set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved composition and set in Paris of the 1920s, is a vision of Christmas Eve envisioned by Marcello Angelini, the ballet’s artistic director. With fresh choreography, a larger children’s cast and the return of a favorite character from the past – Mother Ginger – Tulsa Ballet’s The Nutcracker is every bit the classical tale of a child’s dreamtime adventure with the added polish and glamour unique to the renowned dance company and Tulsa. Tulsa Symphony joins Tulsa Ballet at the PAC, 101 E. Third St., for the final weekend of performances – 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and 7 p.m. on Saturday. Go to www.myticketoffice.com
