The Nutcracker

This December, SCBS and the Venice Symphony are partnering for the first time to usher in the holiday season through this classic tale. Join Clara and her Nutcracker Prince on their adventures in the Kingdom of Sweets and rediscover with your loved ones the joy of this timeless ballet.

Each year, students from all levels at the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School perform this family-favorite. SCBS version is conceived and choreographed by the school's co-artistic directors Ariel Serrano and Wilmian Hernandez, master teacher Delia Ballart Arcia, and resident choreographer Tania Vergara. American conductor Troy Quinn will be leading the Venice Symphony performance of Tchaikovsky’s magnificient score.
