MBC’s original staple The Nutcracker returns to Willson
Celebrating 38 years in Bozeman, the one and only original, MBC’s Nutcracker, returns to the Willson Auditorium on Dec. 4th & 5th
Montana Ballet Company 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 in the 38th annual presentation of The Nutcracker. Villarini-Vélez and Woodward will share the stage with Soren Kisiel, co-director of Broad Comedy, MBC’s own company dancers, and over 100 dancers from the community.
Performances are set for December 4th and 5th at Bozeman’s Willson Auditorium. Two Saturday shows will be held at 2pm and 7pm, followed by a Sunday matinee at 2pm.
Another highlight of this charming production is the live orchestra. Maestro Lee Mills, Associate Conductor of the Seattle Symphony and four-time winner of the Solti Foundation U.S. Career Assistance Award, will conduct the Bozeman Symphony playing Tchaikovsky’s beloved score.
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’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.
