FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Nutcracker ballet will run from Friday, December 1st through Sunday, December 3rd, with a special alumni performance at 4 p-m on Sunday.
The family friendly production will take place at Hering Auditorium, and will have a silent auction in the lobby.
Artistic Director, Courtland Weaver, shared with us why the ballet has withstood the test of time.
Courtland Weaver; Artistic Director - North Star Ballet >> "Well, I think there's a couple things about it, I think the first one is that it's a really pretty production and it's a type of elegance that isn't seen very often. It harkens back to a more elegant age that escapes us today, and the other thing, or course is Tchaikovsky's music. It's really captivating and has become a staple of any kind of Holiday celebration, so I think those two things."
