Faces and Places:
Nutcracker at the Clunie Center

On Saturday, Nov. 21, the Sacramento Ballet put on a special preview of the Nutcracker for the community at the Clunie Center. The ballet will take stage this year from Dec. 12-22. Best-known and most beloved of all Sacramento traditions, Ron Cunningham’s 28th production of his delightful The Nutcracker is a true holiday spectacular. The enormous growing Christmas tree, Clara’s fearless battle with the Mouse King, the soaring Magic Balloon, the sparkling Snowflake Forest, the delicious Kingdom of the Sweets, and the radiant elegance of the Sugar Plum Fairy have been creating family memories for almost three decades. And yes, the Sacramento Ballet partners once again with the Front Street Animal Shelter to find homes for the adorable canines starring in the Prologue. The ballet is held downtown at the Community Center Theater, 1301 L St. For ticket information, call 808-5181.
