The Nutcracker cracks Miami
The ballet The Nutcracker is the most popular and anticipated show of this Christmas season in Miami. The Nutcracker performances will be held at the Adrienne Arsht Center from December 15 through December 24.
The Miami City Ballet company, the one in charge of the production, has announced that this year the installation comes with substantial overhauls to the characters’ costumes who play this beautiful Christmas tale.
The new production has been possible thanks to the support of the Artistic Director, Lourdes López, guest design artists Isabel and Ruben Toledo and projection artist, Wendall Harrington.
The original story, written in 1816 by Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann, narrates the tale of the wooden nutcracker, which Marie Stahlbaum receives as a present for Christmas and which comes alive to whisk the young girl away to the magical kingdom of dolls, after defeating the wicked Mouse King in battle, mind you.
The backstory of the show’s costumes
On its official website, Miami City Ballet remark that “costumes are carefully constructed to reflect the artists’ vision and to exude the unique personalities of each character.” The fabrics and details included in the new costumes pay homage to the period and the creators of this magical tale.
Featuring George Balanchine’s choreography and Tchaikovsky’s original score, Miami City Ballet comes on the scene of the Adrienne Arsht Center to recreate this marvelous tale worth experiencing again. The Nutcracker performances will be held from December 15 to December 24.
