Nutcracker Performance Schedule in DC and St. Louis

Well, it's Friday and we're all very tired from a hard week of work at the Joffrey.  We have had Ed Liang here creating a new work for the Spring Program, all the while trying to put Nutcracker together at the same time.  We leave for Washington DC on Monday, and open our Nutcracker season there on Wednesday.  From there we travel to St. Louis before coming back to Chicago to open Nutcracker here at home.  The last few weeks have just been madness jumping from one thing to the next and pushing harder on every routine and workout.  We're just doing our best getting ready, gearing up, because come Wednesday, it's opening night and there's no going back, lol!  
We will be leaving Monday morning for Washington where the kids in DC will be waiting for us...they have been rehearsing for months and I can't wait to see them at our first stage rehearsal on Tuesday.  It's going to be a great time and I am looking forward to seeing many of the same faces from the last time we performed in DC.  Below are my performance dates while on tour as well as a few pictures I took this week.  Enjoy!

  • Sugarplums and pointe shoes! Visions of childhood. To me, the Nutcracker Ballet signifies a passage from childhood to adulthood and, in the last part, where all the magical characters are drifting away, it is like losing one's childhood forever. The land of dreams is gone. How I wish adults could nurture this childlike spirit of play and harmony!
