While Visions of Sugarplums Danced in their Heads…
Galmont Ballet’s sparkling production of the enduring classic “The American Nutcracker,” will usher in the holiday season. Choreographed by Frank Galvez, this production is set in the turn of the 19th century and is filled with 50 performers, stunning set designs and elaborate costumes. With scores of children, mice, and snowflakes, this spectacular achievement offers a perfect complement to Tchaikovsky’s glorious musical score.
See leaping Russians, dancing snow flakes, and exotic Arabian dancers as a young girl’s holiday dream comes to life before your eyes. The beloved holiday ballet tells the timeless tale of a young girl’s magical visit to a dreamy “Land of Sweets,” where she encounters fabulous characters from all over the world, rescues the Nutcracker Prince from the evil Rat King, and is blessed by the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy.
“The American Nutcracker” will open Saturday, December 17 at 2 and 7:30 p.m. and continue Sunday, December 18 at 2 and 7:30 p.m., at the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse in Cocoa.
The Galmont Youth Ballet Company will also be performing excerpts from “The American Nutcracker” in a collaborative presentation with the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, December 3 at 2 and 7 p.m. at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy Auditorium in Melbourne.
