Jupiter-based Paris Ballet and Dance will kick off the holiday season with the spellbinding magic of The Nutcracker, hitting the Eissey Campus Theatre stage in Palm Beach Gardens November 18 and 19. The performances will take place at 7 p.m. on November 18, and 1 and 6:30 p.m. on November 19.
Set to by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, the full-length production will feature choreography by the school’s founder and director, Jean-Hugues Feray. It will also showcase the talents of young dancers ages 3 to 18—including five longtime Paris Ballet students with lead roles, including: Nicholas Bondar, Maia DeOreo, Endia Banks, Raelin Flanigan, and Isabella Gutierrez.
The annual production has become a local family holiday tradition.
