Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Sarasota: The Sarasota Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall

This year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is streaming in Sarasota, directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, which was built in 1968 and opened its doors two years later with a production of Fiddler on the Roof. It has also long presented Broadway musicals, a variety of national and international performers, world-class symphony orchestras, and a mix of classical, modern, and ethnic dance performances. The theater also offers educational and outreach programs for the local community. Among those soon to grace the Van Wezel stage are Dolly Parton, K.D. Lang, the New York Pops, and the traveling production of Shrek: The Musical. For tickets, call (941) 263-6799 or (800) 826-9303. 

Past Sarasota Ballet Partnership: Stage Door Studios

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Sarasota children from Stage Door Studios. Stage Door Studios has designed an excellent dance and theater program of activities to give children a chance to experience the joy of dancing and creative movement in a fun and loving atmosphere. They are committed to providing a stimulating and adventurous environment to enhance children’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual and creative growth. Our Sarasota dance staff will use music, props, costumes and creative movement to introduce children to the world of dance. Students will develop rhythm, coordination, musicality and creativity, as well as the ability to follow directions, interact with peers, take turns patiently and gain self-confidence. Most importantly, our classes are FUN!
