The new ballet company in the Twin Cities, Ballet Co.Laboratory, presents Nutcracker in Wonderland December 14th-16th at The Huss Center for Performing Arts at the St. Paul Academy and Summit School. This original production twists together the classic holiday ballet with the characters and themes of Alice in Wonderland for an evening of magic.
The story brings college-age Clara to modern times, where her adult reality warps before her eyes into a familiar childhood fantasy. Clara and her childhood friend Patty are led by the Mad Hatter through the snow and flowers of Wonderland to meet the unique characters from Wonderland. Joining the company of Ballet Co.Laboratory will be students from the school and aspects of collaboration with local organizations such as Feline Rescue, Handsome Cycles and Twin Cities Unicycle Club to this production. Audiences will enjoy Tchaikovsky’s music with a unique storyline, original choreography by Zoe Emilie Henrot, and vibrant costumes created by Butler University graduate Hope Hagen.
This story will resonate with audiences of all ages with themes of self-discovery, relatable life milestones, and recognizable childhood characters from both classic tales.
