Seiwert’s take on this Sacramento tradition premiered in 2018 to critical and audience acclaim. She tells the classic tale with a contemporary sensibility, following Marie and her Nutcracker Prince as they travel through the Pine Forest into the Kingdom of Sweets. Marie is a heroine for our times: brave, loving, and kind, exploring her sense of self and self-empowerment.
Every year, the production features more than 250 children in the roles of party guests, dolls, mice, soldiers and candies. They perform alongside the Company’s 21 professional dancers and 13 Trainees.
Presented by Sacramento Ballet.
