Nutcracker 2011

Recommended Posts

I decided to make it an extra special Thansgiving weekend by attending the opening night performance of Nuts at NYCB. I had never seen Tiler Peck do Dewdrop before. She was incredible. Every air position was spot on. Gorgeous lines and such musicality! She was a joy. Sara Mearns was Sugar Plum, and Jonathan Stafford was her Cavalier. Mearns may not have the most pristine classical technique, but she was thrilling to watch. Every moment is filled with drama and excitement when she dances. Stafford is a bit reserved compared to Mearns, but he was a strong partner for her. He danced his solos very well. Georgina P. did coffee. She has all the steps down perfectly, but she seems to avoid the overt sexual innuendos of the role that others play up. Periera was Marzipan. All the kids were very well rehearsed. It was a nearly full house.

Anyone else see Nuts this weekend?
