Ballet Minnesota’s 31st annual The Classic Nutcracker, returns to the O’Shaughnessy! Come celebrate this annual family holiday tradition!
For novices to the ballet, this holiday story begins on Christmas Eve. We join a young girl, Clara, her mischievous brother, Fritz, and their family hosting a Christmas party. A latecomer to the party is Clara’s mysterious Godfather Drosselmeyer. He presents her with a marvelous gift, a Nutcracker doll.
As Clara goes to sleep that night, we are transported into her dream of the Rat King fighting the Nutcracker and his army of toy soldiers. The Nutcracker Prince escorts Clara through an enchanted snow-covered forest and on to his Kingdom of the Sweets where Clara accepts the throne from the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Contempo Physical Dance

Contempo is recognized for dynamic Afro-Brazilian dance fused with a lush contemporary aesthetic. Fonsêca is a black movement activist, Afro-Brazilian feminist and artist from Bahia, Brazil – highly recognized as a female leader in a field dominated by male choreographers.
Known as Daughter of Oba, Orixá that is the Queen of the Warriors, Fonsêca’s choreography is clearly immersed in her Afro-Brazilian lineage, and she creates work of cultural and physical intensity. Her world premiere, created for Contempo’s fiercely athletic dancers, will excite audiences with its innate theatricality.
