ARTS COUNCIL OF BIG SKY

The Arts Council of Big Sky presents a production of Montana Ballet Company’s “The Nutcracker” at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 4 p.m.

MBC’s production of “The Nutcracker,” set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, is one of the largest artistic collaborations in the region featuring the work of accomplished dancers, local and national level choreographers, guest artists, live musicians, seasoned stage technicians, lighting and costume designers and a host of dedicated volunteers.

For this special performance at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center, a live chamber orchestra will perform the music and local dancers will participate as mice and angels.

Montana Ballet Company is thrilled to welcome guest artists Rachel Van Buskirk and Christian Clark, principal dancers with the Atlanta Ballet, who will be appearing in the Big Sky performance. Both guest artists have notable careers and have danced professionally throughout the United States and abroad.

They will share the stage with MBC’s own company dancers and local dancers from the Big Sky community. Also featured in the cast is Soren Kisiel, co-director of Broad Comedy, who will once again dance the role of Drosselmeyer.
