The icing on this sumptuous show is the world-class elegance of guest dancers Kathryn Morgan as The Sugar Plum Fairy and Amar Ramasar as her Cavalier. Ramasar is a principal dancer with New York City Ballet, and Morgan is a former soloist with New York City Ballet. She's also a Mobile native who studied at Mobile Ballet School and danced with Mobile Ballet for years.
Together and while dancing solo, Amasar and Morgan are amazing to behold.

In Elena Glurdjidze, who dances Aurora opposite Arionel Vargas's affable Prince Désiré, McWhinney has the ideal role model. Now in the autumn of her career, Glurdjidze has a gentle and very feminine authority which draws you, unresisting, into the dream-universe of Perrault's fairytale. A graduate of the Vaganova Academy in St Petersburg, and a pupil of Lyubov Kunakova, herself a notable Aurora, Glurdjidze invests every step and gesture with meaning. She shows, as every classical ballerina must, that the eyes are the mirror of the soul.
