Placeholder Image
MADISON - World-renowned dancers Sascha Radetsky and Stella Abrera of American Ballet Theatre will star in the 2009 production of Dance Wisconsin's Nutcracker Fantasy. Performances will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 13, at the Wisconsin Union Theater.

Nutcracker Fantasy, an enchanting, family-friendly alternative to traditional Nutcracker productions, has become a holiday tradition in its own right. Under the artistic direction of Jo Jean Retrum, Nutcracker Fantasy takes the best of Tchaikovsky's beloved ballet and infuses it with magical plot twists, original music, a live chorus, and even ballroom dancing.

Monroe students dancing in the production include Claire, Christina, Collette and Curt Wyttenbach (Claire dancing the Spanish solo and Waltz of the Poinsettia pas de deux), Jordan Zweifel and Hailey McIntosh.

Ticket prices are $15, $28 and $30, with a $2 discount for seniors and half price for children. For tickets, call (608) 262-2201 or visit the Wisconsin Union Theater Box Office, 800 Langdon St., Madison.
