“Clara’s Christmas Eve Dream,” a short, seven-minute, artistic film, will be released with narration in English and Spanish on Marquee TV in early to mid-December. In the film, Clara has dreamlike flashbacks to what happened after she went to sleep on Christmas Eve, and wonders if it was just a dream… or was it…
Julie Kent on The Nutcracker:
“Set in historic Georgetown with George Washington as the heroic nutcracker and houseguests like Frederick Douglass, John Paul Jones, and Harriet Tubman, The Washington Ballet’s The Nutcracker is charming iteration of the holiday classic. The tone and ambiance of the Warner Theatre and Tchaikovsky’s iconic score contribute to the holiday spirit, and it is a pleasure to see how the performance touches our audience.
The Nutcracker provides wonderful artistic milestones for our dancers as they move through the ranks and grow artistically and technically over the years. It is a joy to see the whole school represented with the company and to get to see the full spectrum of The Washington Ballet onstage.
