State Street Ballet, Spokane Symphony reunite for ‘the Nutcracker’
As much as “the Nutcracker” itself is a holiday tradition, so too is the yearly trip of members of Santa Barbara’s State Street Ballet to Spokane to perform the Tchaikovsky ballet.
State Street Ballet will return to the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox to perform with the Spokane Symphony, conducted by Jorge Luis Uzcategui, and more than 75 local dancers Thursday through Dec. 2.
Yes, the story may be the same, with a festive Christmas party, life-sized presents from the magical Uncle Drosselmeyer, the Mice King and his troupe of mice and a nutcracker transformed into a handsome prince.
But that means you can count on the magic of “the Nutcracker” and the talent of the State Street Ballet dancers to whisk audiences away to the “Land of the Sugar Plum Fairy” being there time and time again.
