Montana Ballet Company is delighted to announce a return to the stage, December 4 and 5 at the Willson Theatre for their 38th Annual Nutcracker. As with most live performing arts companies, the 37th annual season was altered due to the pandemic. MBC quickly shifted gears to share their annual holiday performance with the release of 2020’s live-streamed Nutcracker REIMAGINED and was met with generous community support – making a return to the stage in 2021 not only possible, but a reality.
The one and only original, MBC’s Nutcracker was first performed in the lobby of First Security Bank in 1983. Over the years, the first weekend in December has become synonymous with the Bozeman Christmas Stroll and MBC’s Nutcracker, a cherished holiday tradition for countless performers and their families and friends, as well as the thousands of audience members who share in the experience year after year.
MBC is thrilled to welcome back exceptional guest artists from the world-renowned New York City Ballet, Sebastián Villarini-Vélez and Indiana Woodward, performing the celebrated roles of Snow King and Queen and Sugar Plum and her Cavalier. Villarini-Vélez and Woodward will share the stage with Soren Kisiel, co-director of Broad Comedy, MBC’s own company dancers, and more than 100 dancers from the community.
Another highlight of this charming production is the live orchestra. Maestro Lee Mills, Associate Conductor of the Seattle Symphony and winner of the Solti Foundation U.S. Career Assistance Award in 2014, 2017, 2019 and 2020 will conduct the Bozeman Symphony playing Tchaikovsky’s beloved score.
MBC’s production of The Nutcracker is one of the largest artistic collaborations in the region featuring the talents of master choreographers, distinguished guest artists, accomplished dancers, live musicians, seasoned stage technicians, costume and lighting designers, and a host of dedicated volunteers. MBC’s Nutcracker is a treat for the entire family!
