The Englert Theatre and Nolte Academy are proud to present a new production of The Nutcracker!
This time-honored Christmas story includes performances by more than 150 dancers and features both a live orchestra conducted by Carey Bostian and a girls choir conducted by Beth Ackerson. This year’s classic Nutcracker ballet features exquisite new costuming, enchanting new sets and captivating new choreography under the direction of Nolte’s Interim Ballet Director and Nutcracker Artistic Director, Mauro Villanueva, all while embracing the classic Nutcracker we have all grown to love.
Join us in welcoming Interim Ballet Director and Nutcracker Artistic Director, Mauro Villanueva. Villanueva joins Nolte Academy following a 13-year career with The Joffrey Ballet in Chicago. During season breaks, Villanueva mastered his teaching style, learning from the very instructors who taught him as a young dancer at Joffrey Texas. He is also currently director of that same program, founded by Robert Joffrey in 1978.
