Catskill Mountain Foundation, in cooperation with Victoria Rinaldi, the Valentina Kozlova dance Conservatory in New York, and Margo Sappington, presents the world’s first favorite ballet—The Nutcracker—which enchants audiences young and old across the world during the holiday season. The long tradition of The Nutcracker will draw you into its magical realm, never to be forgotten. In this special production, Valentina Kozlova will stage the snow scene and second act, inspired by the Bolshoi Ballet production of her youth. Margo Sappington will play the role of Aunty Drosselmeyer. Victoria Rinaldi will once again work with local children and adults to stage the party scene, the battle, the second act angles and Mother Ginger’s children.
