A Victorian Nutcracker Remembrance

Each year since December of 2015, the Catskill Mountain Foundation’s Orpheum Dance Program has proudly presented its annual production of the beloved holiday favorite, The Nutcracker.

This year, Orpheum Dance Program Director Victoria Rinaldi has created a new version of this magical story.

A Victorian Nutcracker Remembrance is a virtual performance, which tells the story of The Nutcracker through the lens of archival video footage from previous Orpheum Dance Program productions, combined with scenes filmed this December in iconic locations in Hunter, Tannersville, and Windham.

Based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffman, music by Tchaikovsky and classic choreography by Maurice Pétipa, The Nutcracker tells the story of little Clara, whose wooden Nutcracker magically comes to life in the middle of the night, battling a Mouse King with an army of toy soldiers. The ballet continues through the lands of Snow and Sweets, and dancers in faraway places. The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy at the end of the magical dream is one of the most famous dances in ballet.
