Christmas Legend – Modern Nutcracker Ballet

December 23, 2023

$35 – $100

Aru Dell’Arte Dance Company is bringing The Nutcracker into the 21st century. Audiences will be dazzled by glamorous Christmas festivities through a sophisticated, modern story twist! Once upon a time – more than magic was about to happen the night before Christmas. This show presents themes of human compassion, love, and friendships while spinning a well-known holiday tale and putting out fun, cool vibes.

Moving past outdated scenes from the original Nutcracker, the Aru Dell’Arte is excited to present a diversity of characters, elevate female-elevated roles, and include a gender-neutral approach in dance partnering. Directed and choreographed by Ukrainian-born, American choreographer Olga Aru. Christmas Legend was dubbed as a modern-day Nutcracker by audiences and national media channels. With two premiere shows being SOLD OUT, the company is excited to return to the Washington DC spotlight.

Note* December 23rd 3pm & 7pm shows
