Join Ballet Hartford at the Wadsworth Mansion for an afternoon of The Nutcracker: Short and Suite. Journey with Clara as she’s swept away to the Land of Sweets and embrace the joyful spirit with cookies, cocoa and ballerina crafts. Be sure to wear your holiday best for meet and greet photos with the professional dancers!
The Mansion is excited to jump into the holiday season with this fantastic event! Guests will be welcomed to a sweet treat of fresh baked cookies and a hot cocoa bar featuring delicious homemade cocoa with all the fixings!
There will be a guided art station in the East Ballroom for the young (and young at heart) to personalize a creation they can take home as a souvenir.
The intimate performance will feature a selection of pieces from the famous ballet itself with an element of narration to help pull the story together.
After the performance, join the dancers in the West Ballroom for a meet and greet, and photos!
