About Los Angeles Ballet The Nutcracker Tickets

Los Angeles Ballet was formed in 2004 by Thordal Christensen, Colleen Neary and Julie Whittaker. At the time, the ballet company certainly came off as a breath of fresh air as it became known for its innovative productions having an out-of-the-box approach towards the sets, lighting, and costumes. Eventually changing the landscape of ballet. LAB has come up with eighteen productions to date, including thirteen world premiers. The performances are witnessed all through Los Angeles hitting seven venues on regular basis. These venues include Carpenter Performing Arts Center, Valley Performing Arts Center, Alex Theatre, and Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center. Today LAB not only stands for an academy but a benchmark of quality. Lewis Segal from Los Angeles Times is of the opinion that LAB “was founded with the highest possible standards… is not only news, its inspiring” while also calling it an “admirable and creative company”.
In addition to the matchless aesthetics, the company also stands out because of its comprehensive repertoire. Giselle, La Sylphide, Swan Lake, NextWaveLA, Balanchine ‘see the music, hear the dance’, Director’s Choice, and An Evening of Balanchine are a few from its repertoire. To watch another piece of art make sure to attend Los Angeles Ballet The Nutcracker. The original Nutcracker is a two-act ballet with music by Pyotr IIyich Tchaikovsky. The choreography was done by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. The content of the ballet has been taken from E.T.A Hoffmann’s The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The plot throws light on the battle between good (nutcracker) and evil (the Mouse King), as they fight for supremacy. The ballet makes for a perfect Christmas gift with Christmas trees, toys, and snowflakes in the backdrop. Seeing The Nutcracker has become a tradition as not a single holiday season goes by without watching this ballet.
Alastair Macauley from the New York Times rightly says “The Nutcracker is now a seasonal entertainment even in parts of America where snow seldom falls…the importance of this ballet to America has become a phenomenon”. The Nutcracker saw its premiere in 1892 at the Imperial Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. And, since then it has been enjoying phenomenal success worldwide. Countless productions of this ballet have been witnessed over the years. Alexander Gorsky in 1919 showcased his rendition of the ballet eliminating Sugar Plum Fairy while making several other changes by giving his own perspective.
In 1927, another production was seen at Royal Opera House choreographed by Ede Brada. Another choreographer, Vasili Vainonen also came up with his version of The Nutcracker in 1934. His production in particular helped others to follow in his footsteps and bring forth some better productions in the future. Other than these, there have been many film and television productions of the ballet.
