The Nutcracker

The Catskill Mountain Foundation, in cooperation with former Metropolitan Opera ballerina Victoria Rinaldi and choreographers Valentina Kozlova and Margo Sappington, presents the world’s favorite ballet, The Nutcracker, a holiday favorite of residents of the Catskills and the Hudson Valley. The CMF Nutcracker, now in its seventh year, has become a holiday favorite of residents of the surrounding Catskills and Hudson Valley.  Featuring ballet stars of the future, this spectacular production has become one of the finest Nutcrackers in upstate New York.

In this special holiday production, select guest artists will dazzle in the major dance roles.  Victoria Rinaldi works with the community to stage the party, battle, angels and Mother Ginger.  Award-winning choreographers Valentina Kozlova and Margo Sappington choreograph two of the scenes in the ballet.

The Nutcracker is the story of a young girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and his fierce battle against a Mouse King.  According to folklore, nutcrackers represent power and strength and bring good luck to your family and protect your home.  The story of The Nutcracker is a dream about good triumphing evil through the goodness of heart of a young child.  The Nutcracker is a two-act ballet, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.  The libretto is adapted by E.T.A. Hoffman’s story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King”.
