Come celebrate a very special performance of the holiday classic with the American Academy Nutcracker. This pro- duction has become a Western New York favorite, selling out performances at U. B. Center for the Arts. The charm of this produc- tion is its child friendly approach. Choreographed to delight children of all ages there are surprises tucked into every scene. “People always tell me how magical our production is” says director, Maris Battaglia, and I really think it is! Although it’s very traditional, I wanted every scene to be filled with wonder and joy.” A highlight of the Academy’s Nutcracker is a visit that Clara and her Prince take to exciting lands each year. They fly around the world in a hot air balloon. “It’s really quite spec- tacular,” comments Battaglia. This production has scene after scene of color and magic. In China a giant dragon takes cen- ter stage. In Holland, a beautiful Butterfly flies above the sleeping flow- ers, and at the North Pole, Santa’s elves are busy putting finishing touch- es on holiday toys. The Snow Scene takes place in Central Park with an actual skating rink. Misa Kuranaga, Principal Dancer with Boston Ballet andDaniel Ulbricht, Principal Dancer with New York City Ballet will perform the lead roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier! Performances take place at U.B. Center for the Arts on December 1st at 1pm and 5pm. Come ear
