The Arts Council of Big Sky is pleased to bring a production of Montana Ballet Company’s “The Nutcracker” to the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Dec. 4th, at 4 p.m. This second annual Big Sky performance is generously underwritten by NorthWestern Energy, the Yellowstone Club Community Foundation and the Spanish Peaks Community Foundation.
MBC’s production of The Nutcracker, set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, is one of the largest artistic collaborations in the region featuring the work of accomplished dancers, local and national level choreographers, guest artists, live musicians, seasoned stage technicians, lighting and costume designers and a host of dedicated volunteers. For this special performance at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center, a live chamber orchestra will perform the music and local dancers under the direction of Jennifer Waters will take part in the production performing as mice and angels.
Montana Ballet Company is thrilled to welcome new guest artists Rachel Van Buskirk and Christian Clark, principal dancers with the Atlanta Ballet, who will be appearing in the Big Sky performance. Both guest artists have notable careers and have danced professionally throughout the United States and abroad.
