Bringing the spirit of the holidays to Sarasota, Matthew Hart’s John Ringling’s Circus Nutcracker will enchant audiences for 3 performances on 18 - 19 December 2015 at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score by the Sarasota Orchestra, John Ringling’s Circus Nutcracker entwines the history of John and Mable Ringling and Sarasota’s connection to the circus with Hoffman’s classical Nutcracker. Dance critic Carrie Seidman hailed the ballet as an “over-the-top” production that “works beautifully, giving a fresh injection of life to a more than century-old ballet.”
