Scenic Design: Theatre, Ballet, Opera > Nutcracker Ballet

Created for the Minnesota Ballet, this Nutcracker celebrates the beauty of a Northland winter at the turn of the century. Opening with a Christmas Eve party in the mansion of a lumber baron, and a sea-faring Uncle Drosselmeyer's arrival. We travel with the dancers as mice and soldiers battle under the Christmas Tree, out into a snowy night by the birch-ringed shores of a frozen lake, and finally into Clara's dream of an Eastern Palace.
