Aspen Santa Fe to Perform The Nutcracker

This weekend the vibrant Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Company will be performing The Nutcracker, a holiday favorite of children ages 3 to 93, at the historic Lensic Performing Arts Center.  This enchanting ballet will leave you with visions of sugarplums dancing in your head, as well as snowflakes, soldiers, mice, Chinese and Russian dancers and so much more.  Directors Jean-Philippe Malaty and Tom Mossbrucker work every year to out-do the previous year's performance, so this year's show, with a cast of over 60 dancers, actors, circus artists and students of the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet School promises to be more lavish than ever - a perfect way to get into a festive mood for the holidays.

After the show, you may want to head up the street for a stroll around the plaza, along with a stop for tea and a scrumptious pastry at the Plaza Bakery-Haagen-Dazs.  The trees of the Santa Fe Plaza are festooned with colorful lights, adding to the magical mood of The Nutcracker. 

Choose from four performance times:  December 11 at 2pm and 7:30pm or December 12 at 1pm and 5pm.

Ticket prices range from $20-$62 
Tickets may be purchased by calling the box office at  (505)988-1234
