Catskill Mountain Foundation, in cooperation with former Metropolitan Opera ballerina Victoria Rinaldi and Tony-nominated choreographer Margo Sappington, presents the sixth annual Holiday production of world’s favorite ballet, The Nutcracker. This production of The Nutcracker has become a holiday favorite of residents of the Catskills and the Hudson Valley. Victoria once again worked with local children and adults to stage the party, battle and angels scenes, Marzipan, and Mother Ginger. The major roles will be played by professional dancers as well as up and coming ballet stars. Loyal fans of this production may even recognize a few faces of dancers who started in minor roles as children, and have graduated to some of the most prestigious and difficult roles in the ballet. Margo Sappington returns as Auntie Drosselmeyer. This year, The Nutcracker will have its own very first true Mountaintop Clara, Lada Svechnikova, the pivotal role in the production. A Clara veteran, Penelope Struthers, will return in dual roles: Marzipan and Christmas Star, one of the most difficult roles in the ballet.
