The Arlington Children’s Chorus is thrilled to be back at the John F. Kennedy Center of the Performing Arts from Wednesday, November 22 through Sunday, November 26, kicking off the 2017 holiday season in the Kansas City Ballet’s D.C. premiere of The Nutcracker.
This year, the inventive choreography of Kansas City Ballet Artistic Director Devon Carney, elegant set design of Alain Vaes, and glorious costumes of Holly Hynes create a dynamic fusion with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky‘s timeless score.
Our choristers will join the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra in the pit, lending their voices to the “glistening Snow Scene,” while “dozens of local children will take the stage, this year portraying adorable bunnies, lambs, dolls, soldiers, and angels.”
This year’s production contains plenty of surprises, including a toy bear that comes to life, a grandfather with hip hop moves, and a line of giant Matryoshka – Russian nesting dolls.
We hope you’ll come see the show. With both matinee (1:30 p.m.) and evening (7:30 p.m.) performances this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, there are plenty of opportunities to start your holiday season off with some extra-special magic! Click here to purchase tickets.
