About The Nutcracker
The Nutcracker will be presented with some creative liberties by the directors. “It’s based on The Nutcracker story but with our own spin. Ours is a mix of classical and contemporary dances,” reveals Teacher Gianne Sanchez-Sanson. She directs the show together with her sister, internationally renowned ballerina, Georgette Sanchez-Vargas.
The Nutcracker Ballet is based on the story written by E.T.A. Hoffman. Originally entitled, “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice”, this dance has been performed with so many variations but the basic plot remains the same.
It is basically about the story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and his fierce battle against the Mouse King.
For The Nutcracker alone, there will be a total of has 137 performers.
