The Nutcracker

Accompanied by the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Andrew Sewell, Madison Ballet is preparing for their 13-performance run of The Nutcracker at the Overture Center.

The production features Artistic Director Ja’ Malik’s company dancers, along with more than seventy-five members of the community, dancing choreography by former company Artistic Director Sara Stewart Schumann, Thomas Mattingly, Yaqi Wu, Yu-Jhe Sun, and Michelle Ramos.

“Our performance of The Nutcracker is a truly amazing example of how ballet can bring together the whole community,” according to Malik. “Using Tchaikovsky’s score which was commissioned by a Russian Prince and premiered in 1892, we are able to create an all inclusive production that is shared among our entire community.”
