World-renowned dancers Sascha Radetsky and Stella Abrera of American Ballet Theatre will star in the 2009 production of Dance Wisconsin’s Nutcracker Fantasy. Performances will take place Saturday, December 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 13 at 2 p.m. at the Wisconsin Union Theater.
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.
