From the bizarre battle of the mice and soldiers, to the mesmerizing snow scene, to the delectable dances in the Kingdom of the Sweets, Midwest Ballet Theatre's highly acclaimed annual production of Tchaikovsky's holiday classic, The Nutcracker will be presented at 1:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, Nov. 12, 13, 19 and 20 at the beautifully restored Tivoli Theatre, 5021 Highland Ave., in downtown Downers Grove.
Danced by the unsurpassed young talent of Midwest Ballet Theatre, this year's guest artists will be April Daly and Mauro Villanueva, both principal dancers with the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, returning to the Tivoli stage, along with Matthew Geiger, former American Ballet Theatre II dancer.
Based on the original late 19th Century libretto, MBT's full-length production has sold out or almost sold out every performance since its premiere in 1994. Choreography is by artistic director Mim Eichmann. MBT is a not-for-profit organization. NON-REFUNDABLE ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
