The Santa Claus is part of Twin City Ballet’s 50th season, which showcases the Ballet Company’s distinct style for timeless, iconic and innovative performances. With Christmas only two days away, Santa heads out to make a pre-Christmas run with the reindeer. When a freak accident happens, Santa has to be replaced at the very last minute! Unsure of what is happening, the “new” Santa is rushed to the North Pole. In all of the excitement, the new Santa Claus accidentally leaves two toys behind, the Snow Doll and Jack Frost. Upset and disappointed, these two toys hatch a plan to stop Santa from having Christmas the very next year! Do they succeed? Will Christmas come? Will there be Christmas next year? Join Twin City Ballet Company and a cast of characters as they all help Santa save next Christmas Eve’s launch! Choreographed by Joe Istre, this all new Christmas ballet will be the talk of the town this holiday season.
Twin City Ballet’s amazing array of dancers will also present Act II of the most beloved Christmas ballet of all, The Nutcracker. Set to Peter Tchaikovsky’s famous score, and choreographed by Kristy Nilsson of the Ballet Center of Houston, this portion of the story sees Clara wander through an amazing snow scene and into the Land of the Sweets. Guest artists, Isabella Padilla and Zherlin Ndudi, will perform the iconic roles of Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier. Delight in the Sugar Plum Fairy’s court as the Arabian coffee, Chinese tea, Spanish chocolates and more perform for Clara.
