    Nutcracker Ballet

    The Legendary Ballet Danced by Children for Children of All Ages

    Round Top Festival Institute will once again present Tchaikovsky's holiday classic ballet, The Nutcracker. This year's production celebrates the 12th annual performance danced by Ovation Ballet Company, a youth ballet company in residency at Dancers Workshop in Austin. The legendary ballet will be one show only at the Round Top Festival Institute Concert Hall on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 4:00 PM.

    The performance of The Nutcracker will include a cast of over 70 dancers ranging from second grade through high school. Chris Ehresman, Austin-based actor/singer/dancer, will again join the cast as the mysterious Herr Drosselmeyer. This year's production will include two dancers from the local area. Local students hail from La Grange and Weimar. These dancers are ballet students at Saltare Studio in La Grange. They travel to Austin every Saturday to rehearse with Ovation Ballet Company members who are all students at Dancers Workshop.

    New costumes for the Snowflakes in the Snow Scene have been added to this year's production along with several sections of new choreography. The ballet also includes dancing party guests, menacing rats, soldiers brandishing candy canes, Mother Ginger and her beloved BonBons, graceful snowflakes and flowers, the handsome Nutcracker Prince and...the most famous holiday favorite, the Sugar Plum Fairy.

    Tickets are Adult $40, Student $20. Special prices are available for groups of 20 or more. Call the office for more information. General seating. Tickets for this event generally sell out. Buy your tickets early. Tickets will be held at the will call table on the west side of the concert hall. Doors open at 3:00 PM.

    Don't miss this holiday favorite danced by children for children of any age!

    Overnight accommodations will be available on campus for this weekend.
