Although there are dozens of holiday productions around town, "Loyce Houlton's Nutcracker Fantasy" by Minnesota Dance Theatre always marks a high point in the year-end festivities. On opening night Friday at the Cowles Center, its celebratory spirits were clearly intact.

The Vienna Ballet continues to experiment with newer and lesser known works, premiering on Saturday "Bluebeard's Secret" ("Blaubarts Geheimnis") by German choreographer Stephan Thoss to an enthusiastic crowd.

The piece, first performed in February 2011 at the Hessisches Staatstheater in Wiesbaden, Germany, follows the immense success last season of "Carmina Burana," "Bolero" and "Afternoon of a Faun": three new pieces created by former Vienna Ballet dancers.
