Act I features the magical party scene with Clara, Fritz and the whole family celebrating Christmas Eve, when the mice, rat king and soldiers take the stage for their epic battle. Clara is then led through the Land of Snow into the Land of Sweets, home of the Sugar Plum Fairy, her cavalier and her court, where they celebrate with dances from around the world; set to Tchaikovsky’s score.

Directed and choreographed by Beth Fecteau, this is Saratoga City Ballet’s 26th Anniversary production of the Nutcracker – a perfect holiday treat for audiences of all ages! Beth Fecteau’s choreography and production of Nutcracker premiered in 1996 at the Historic Cohoes Music Hall presented by Youth Ballet Company and Dance Eclectic.  After two years and a growing school and cast, this production moved to The Egg and was performed annually until 2004. Beth retired the production when she was named Director of the Museum of Dance in Saratoga Springs merging Youth Ballet Company into what is now the School of the Arts at the Museum of Dance.  Beth is thrilled to be sharing her work with new dancers and a new organization in the 26th Year of Saratoga City Ballet’s production.
