All About Snow – Part 2

Patricia Delgado’s snow series comes to an end as she uncovers the trick to getting those beautiful snow crowns on and talks to the dancers about their most memorable snow performances. Plus, she gives you a peek at the backstage action during the ever-so-special snow scene!

All About Snow

Although snow is unusual in our part of the country, MCB has the ability to make magical things happen! That’s why every Nutcracker season, it snows on the stage of four special theaters in South Florida.

Patricia Delgado, principal dancer and snow alumni, breaks through the blizzard to uncover all the secrets of George Balanchine’s snow scene in The Nutcracker. You don’t want to miss the first of this two-part snow series!

Party Children, Angels and Soldiers, Oh My!

One of the best parts of MCB’s production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™ is that the children in the cast are students at Miami City Ballet School! Every year these talented young dancers take on the roles of the Party Children, Soldiers, Angels, Candy Canes, Tea, and of course the Little Prince and Little Princess (Marie). They all work extremely hard during their rehearsal period and at the end of it all get to perform onstage with the company during this loved family tradition.

We talked to a few of the cast members to find out their thoughts about The Nutcracker.

MCB will perform George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™ at Adrienne Arsht Center from December 17-19 and 21-23.

Behind The Nutcracker with Leigh-Ann Esty

We are two weeks into our Nutcracker run, which started off in Naples on November 26. Leigh-Ann Esty took the Flip camera with her across Alligator Alley and gave us a glimpse into the backstage happening at the Naples Philharmonic Center.

MCB will perform George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™ this weekend at Broward Center and December 17-19 & 21-23 at Adrienne Arsht Center.

‘Tis the Season!

Holiday lights and mistletoe are being hung. Christmas trees are going up and tonight the first candle on the menorah will be lit. This is the time of year when over-eating and over-spending is OK! But the best part of the holiday season is that the Nutman returns to MCB and the company performs George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™ ! You may remember how hard the Nutman works from his training video we posted last November, and this season is no different! He made his first appearance in our Miami Beach building last week and everyone was very excited to see him.

Stay tuned to see what the Nutman has up his sleeve this season!

Don’t miss him onstage with Miami City Ballet this weekend at Kravis Center, December 10-12 at Broward Center, and December 17-19 & 21-23 at Adrienne Arsht Center.
