Back by popular demand, Chico Community Ballet’s newly envisioned and Chico unique ….. A Very Chico “Nutcracker” returns to the stage. Based on the traditional “Nutcracker” ballet and infused with rich Chico history, journey back time to the magical night before Christmas at the home of Dr. Oscar Stansbury’s family, where their daughter Angeline receives a most mysterious gift that sparks a wondrous adventure. As the colossal Christmas tree shoots skyward and a battle erupts between the Nutcracker and the Mouse King to the beautiful almond blossoms blanketing the stage and bumble bees a flutter, the ballet magically transports Angeline and the audience to an enchanted land of wildflowers where visitors from faraway lands, waltzing flowers and special surprises await all! This is a true holiday treat for the whole family and not to be missed.
This performance is co-sponsored by Friends of Chico Community Ballet and Chico Performances and supported by the Stansbury Home Preservation Association.Artist Website
