Ballet West's Nutty Nutcracker
Posted 01 January 2009 - 06:22 AM
I was at that show and it was terrific. It was just about sold out. The audience was laughing and engaged and at the end there was a standing ovation.
I realize that a few patrons may not have been happy as they did not know it was going to be a "nutty" show but most everyone around me thought it was wonderful.
As someone who has seen and is proud of our Nutcracker - Willam Christensen's is the first full version in America, I found Ballet West's Nutty performance was also completely respectful of the choreography and the magic of this beautiful production.
Do people think that presenting one "Nutty" show out of almost 30 is a bad idea?

Some patrons complained because they did not get enough notice - which is fair.
Other complaints I guess are just because they didn't like it
BTW - my favorite bit was a 3 couple tag-team sugar plum pas de deux executed seamlessly by the companies leading dancers
