Did anyone see the Orlando Nutcracker? I was wondering how it was.

Thanks.

A Mom...Unfortunately I wasn't able to see this years Nutcracker but have talked with many who did. Katia Garza danced a superb Suger Plum and Dew Drop and has been an Orlando favorite with many audience members. After seeing her as Kitri in Fernando Bujones' Don Q. I can certainly understand why. I've seen Beth Parks emerge over the years and I've loved her in every role she's done. I was told her endless balances coupled with her beautiful long-legged extentions took the breath away from several audience members. I'm sure there were other stand-outs as well and I'm sorry I couldn't report more! I hope to attend their 30th Anniversay Gala in March. Katia will dance the Pas from Don Q. (worth it just for that alone) and Rasta Thomas and Angel Corella will also be dancing as guests. It should be an exciting evening for sure!

Thanks for the review. I heard that Fernando Bujones is coming out of retirement for the spring Gala and that it's already sold out. Do you know?

Mom 1...Yes Fernando is dancing in a piece from 'Phantom of the Opera' and despite his age he has kept his slim physique and can still do some pretty bravura dancing steps. Last season in our Nutty Nutcracker he was a hoot in the "Thriller" spoof during the party scene! ~~I don't know if it is sold out yet but I can certainly check for you. Tango

Mom1...Just checked about the gala tickets and it does seem that there are few left! Ofcourse I would keep checking for the next few weeks as they do seem to release more tickets to the public as it gets closer to the event and maybe you'll get lucky by calling just at the right time! Tango
