HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN SEE IN DE­CEM­BER... Dec 12: The Nutcracker and I

This is The Nu­tracker like you’ve never seen it be­fore – as the story is brought to life by ex­quis­ite hand-drawn an­i­ma­tions with live mu­sic. Dur­ing the per­for­mance, pi­anist Alexan­dra Dari­escu presents her won­der­ful take on the muchloved tale through an in­cred­i­ble fu­sion of re­al­ity and tech­nol­ogy. Fea­tur­ing ar­range­ments of clas­sics such as Su­gar Plum Fairy, Pas de Deux and the Flower Waltz, it will leave you feel­ing as though you’re a part of The Nutcracker.
