Foehringer uses his choreographic skills in contemporary dance and ballet to craft a show that is sure to thrill dance newcomers and the most jaded balletomane. See all of the favorite Nutcracker characters in beautiful costumes performing on a colorful set with live chamber orchestra music.
Maestro Michael Morgan of Oakland East Bay Symphony serves as Music Director for the nine-piece orchestra. Award-winning scenic designer Peter Crompton provides the set design and Emmy-nominated Richard Battle creates gorgeous costumes. Former ODC dancer Brian Fisher returns as the popular character Drosselmeyer.
