FLAGSTAFF, ARIZONA – In collaboration with NAU Community Music and Dance Academy Ballet Troupe and the Arizona Mountain Chorale, The Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra will present The Nutcracker concert and ballet on December 6 at 7:30 p.m. and on December 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Ardrey Memorial Auditorium. The FSO also presents the Lollipop Concert, December 7 at 2:00 p.m., an abridged and kid-friendly version of The Nutcracker for children of all ages.
Tickets are now available for the three concert events each featuring Tchaikovsky’s beloved The Nutcracker ballet suite. A sparkling party, a dramatic battle, and a whimsical journey to the Land of Sweets are all experienced through one of the greatest symphonic scores ever written. The dancers bring the story to life through captivating choreography. Adored by children and parents, this is a Flagstaff holiday tradition.
Maestro Charles Latshaw with the FSO celebrates this annual tradition in Flagstaff. “The FSO production of the Nutcracker is a great experience for the whole family. Hundreds of Flagstaff’s own dancers and musicians come together every year for this hallowed Holiday tradition,” says Latshaw. Andrew Needhammer is the Choreographer with NAU Community Music and Dance Academy Ballet Troupe and Arizona Mountain Chorale.
The Friday and Saturday evening concerts are sponsored by Arizona Snowbowl and the Lollipop Concert is sponsored by Flagstaff Symphony Guild and NAH Foundation. Discounted tickets are available for the Lollipop Matinee, by using code FSOFAMILY for one free child with each adult ticket purchase.
