This month, The Sarasota Ballet announced an additional performance of their new production of The Nutcracker in collaboration with the Venice Performing Arts Center. Performed by the Sarasota Ballet Studio Company, the students of The Sarasota Ballet School, The Margaret Barbieri Conservatory, and Dance – The Next Generation, the beloved holiday classic will get live accompaniment by the Venice Symphony Orchestra led by Conductor Joseph Caulkins. “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with the Venice Symphony on The Sarasota Ballet School’s new production of a holiday treasure, The Nutcracker,” said Iain Webb, Director of The Sarasota Ballet. “We are looking forward to sharing the magic of ballet with our community. To bring the experience to audiences at the Venice Performing Arts Center is a treat.” The production will feature enchanting sets and breathtaking costumes created by internationally renowned ballet designer Peter Farmer. The production is directed by School faculty member, Risa Kaplowitz and is sponsored by Gulf Coast Community Foundation. Christopher Hird, Education Director of The Sarasota Ballet, said “I am thrilled to launch this new partnership with The Venice Symphony. Having the opportunity to perform to live music is a real gift and will be a highlight of the year for our students. I look forward to The Nutcracker becoming an annual holiday tradition for the Venice community.”
