Green Mountain Nutcracker
Join Marie on a magical adventure, as she follows the Nutcracker Prince from her Vermont home through snow-enchanted forests to a magical land. Whether you’re seeing it for the first or the sixteenth time, The Green Mountain Nutcracker will transport you to a familiar-made-fantastical world. From the boisterous loggers to the Maple Sugar fairy, you’ll delight in the many colorful, local characters that give this interpretation its name.
Now in its 16th year, this one-of-a-kind production features an all-ages, +45 member cast of professional company dancers and scores of local students, all-original choreography by Christine Harris, Brandy Perez, Bridget Wheeler, and Willow Wonder, set to both Tchaikovsky’s familiar score and original music by Vermont musician, Colin McCaffrey, as well as a delightful array of locally made sets and costumes.
Set in Vermont in the 1970s, this close-to-home and dear-to-heart northern rendition of the classic ballet continues to enthrall audiences of all ages. Make memories, and create your own annual tradition, with friends and family at one of Vermont’s most beloved holiday performances.
We are so grateful and excited to return to the Barre Opera House to share this Joy filled experience with you!
