      Southwest Virginia Ballet Presents: The Nutcracker

      Clara always looked forward to her family's Christmas Eve celebrations: the party, the dancing, the gifts. But this year, her godfather, the eccentric Herr Drosselmeyer, unleashes an unforgettable night of adventure and magic. Join Clara and the Nutcracker Prince as they battle giant mice, twirl with snowflakes and journey to the Land of the Sweets where the Sugar Plum Fairy entertains them with exotic dances from around the world.

      For 29 years, Southwest Virginia Ballet has staged this holiday tradition for families and visitors to the Roanoke Valley. With a cast of 150 performers, SVB's Nutcracker is the largest local production - as well as the only one to feature students and community members in nearly every role. The performance is choreography by SVB's talented and artistic director Pedro Szalay, following Terri Post and Elie Lazar. Let this top-notch show usher in the magic of Christmas with its hummable music, lush scenery, lavish costumes - and breathtaking feats of ballet.
