Holiday Tradition Continues in the Northland

Coffee Conversation: The "Manhattan" Nutcracker

For this week’s Coffee Conversation we chatted about Minnesota Ballet’s Nutcracker.

It’s a tradition that’s gone on for many decades and Artistic Executive Director, Robert Gardner, says the classical ballet is a right of passage for a dancer. 

This performance is a little different than the traditional Nutcracker you may have seen. 

The Minnesota Ballet’s performance is set in Manhattan around 1910-1912.

The ballet runs in Duluth December 11 – 13, 2015.

Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday 3 p.m.

Tickets run from $13 – $42.

There will also be performances of the Nutcracker with local dancers throughout the Midwest.

It will be performed in Houghton, Michigan on December 4 and 5 with the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra.

It will be at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts at Michigan Technological University.

The dancers will also be performing in Thunder Bay, Ontario on December 18 and 19 at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium. 

You can purchase tickets on the Minnesota Ballet website, or by calling (218) 529-3742.
