Billings Symphony presenting ‘The Nutcracker’

The Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale presents “The Nutcracker” in three performances: Saturday, Nov. 25 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 26 at 2 p.m. “The Nutcracker” is performed by the San Diego Ballet under the artistic direction of Robin Morgan. Returning guest conductor Ming Luke along with more than 100 local child singers and dancers, take the stage for this charming Thanksgiving weekend tradition.
With its signature theatrics and beloved choreography, the San Diego Ballet delivers a light-hearted interpretation of this holiday classic that is expressive and dramatic. Principal dancers are seasoned professionals who bring strong brilliant technique, expressive artistry and high energy to this well-loved ballet. Audiences easily connect with their inspired performances to Peter Tchaikovsky’s beloved score performed live by the Billings Symphony Orchestra in the pit below the stage.
Roles such as the Sugar Babes, Candy Canes, Gingersnaps, and the Boys & Girls Party Scene will be filled by local dancers under the direction of Betty Loos and Julia Marble of the Montana Dance Center. Lila Virostko, Marlee O’Toole, and Macey Groener will dance the role of Clara. Anna Walsh and Landry Neil will dance as Fritz.
In addition to local dancers cast in the ballet, vibrant young vocalists with the ROCK Children’s Choir under the direction of Janie Sutton will sing during the snow scene.
Families will delight in the classic version of this Billings Thanksgiving weekend tradition of more than 30 years. “Must-see” simply doesn’t capture the live music, high energy of the talented cast, and special stage effects.
