Northwest Florida Ballet’s Nutcracker
In neighboring community of Niceville, just across the Bay from Destin, the Mattie Kelly Arts Center presents numerous plays, musical events and ballets throughout the year. One of the most extraordinary ones is the annual holiday production of the Nutcracker, based on Â E.T.A. Hoffmanâ€™s “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice.” This year celebrates the 35th year that the Northwest Florida Ballet has been producing this holiday classic and now for the first time, is accompanied by Sinfonia whose goal is to enrich and expand the traditional orchestral experience through unique artistic disciplines and collaborations, enhancing Northwest Florida’s cultural vitality.
Performances will be held at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center on November 21st at 7:30 pm, November 22nd at 7:30 pm, and November 23rd at 2:30 pm.
