    ‘The Nutcracker’ ballet returns to the stage Saturday in Council Bluffs – Omaha, Nebraska

    Omaha, Nebraska 2021-11-19 19:32:55 –

    Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV) —A holiday tradition for over a century.

    “It’s like a magical story that connects people,” said Erica Overturf, Artistic Director and CEO of American Midwest Ballet.

    The Nutcracker ballet will begin this weekend at the Hoff Family Arts and Culture Center in Council Bluffs and return to the metro stage.

    Katerina Schweizer of the Midwestern Ballet plays the main character, 12-year-old Clara.

    “She receives the Nutcracker as a Christmas present, and she loves it so much, and she has a dream that the Nutcracker will come back to life after the party is finally over,” Schweizer said. Said.

    The performance is set in the iconic music of composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky, featuring a variety of fascinating sets and over 250 unique costumes.

    “There are so many rhinestones and brilliance and bright colors that really bring it to life,” Schweizer said.

    Overturf says there are some things that are a little different from this year’s Nutcracker.

    “This is the first time a professional dancer has played the role of Clara, and Catalina is doing a great job. There are also some new scenes that have been re-choreed or re-imagined this year,” said Overturff.

    From the breathtaking snow country to the dreamland, the Nutcracker takes the audience to a nostalgic place and creates excitement for the holiday season.

    “I think we can all be involved in that wonder and magical sensation of childhood, and that’s what brings us back to this production every year,” said Overturf.

    Tickets for Saturday performances are still available. Sold out on Sunday.

    In early December, you’ll have more opportunities to see the Nutcracker at the Omaha Orpheum Theater.
