By day, he’s an ordinary nutcracker. By night, he’s an exemplary soldier, fighting against the Rat King and his minions. Then, after midnight, he’s a charming prince who escorts the young Marie to the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets. He’s also a terrific dancer. Suffice it to say, he’s a complicated, multi-dimensional character who your whole family will fall in love with. Don’t miss the Louisville classic, The Brown-Forman Nutcracker.
There’s nothing like seeing new works for the first time in an intimate setting. And what could be more up-close and personal than seeing choreography created for and by Louisville Ballet dancers at the Speed Art Museum? Don’t miss Choreographers’ Showcase presented by Louisville Ballet, and experience amazing art where it belongs: in a museum.
