The Albany Berkshire Ballet (ABB) is bringing it’s Annual Tour of the holiday classic The Nutcracker.   Choreographed by ABB Artistic Director Madeline Cantarella Culpo, with lavish sets and scenery designed by theater and movie set designer Carl Sprague, a Stockbridge native, and costumes designed by Rita Watson and Victile Donahue, will feature young local dance students in special children’s roles alongside the professional dancers of the ABB.   This year’s company includes dancers from around the United States, as well as International.

An annual favorite, the Albany Berkshire Ballet’s Nutcracker tells the story of a

young girl, Clara, and the magical dream she has one Christmas Eve.  The adventures of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince come to life, as they conquer the Mouse King in a mystical journey to The Land of Sweets, all to Tchaikovsky’s glorious music.
