Presented by

Schrader Youth Ballet Company

$18 Adults / $15 Students and Seniors

Come to see this perennial holiday classic, choreographed by Duncan Noble and restaged by SYBC Artistic Director Velma Schrader. This condensed version of the ballet takes place in the dreams of young Clara, in which she receives dolls who take life as the dancers. Set to the classical music of Tchaikovsky, Clara’s Christmas Eve dream begins with a visit from the angels and the Sugar Plum Fairy, and continues with the magical surprises from Herr Drosselmeyer. The ballet was set after the original Ivanov choreography specifically for the youth dancers of SYBC by the late Duncan Noble, world-renowned dancer, teacher, choreographer, and former Dean of Dance at the North Carolina School of the Arts.
