Nutcracker Fantasy, an enchanting, family-friendly alternative to traditional Nutcracker productions, has become a holiday tradition in its own right. Under the artistic direction of Jo Jean Retrum, Nutcracker Fantasy takes the best of Tchaikovsky’s beloved ballet and infuses it with magical plot twists, original music, a live chorus, and even ballroom dancing.
Former Dance Wisconsin company member, Justin Genna (Bohan), currently with the Milwaukee Ballet, returns to dance the Cavalier with partner, Nicole Teague (also with the Milwaukee Ballet).
