Central Florida Ballet's The Nutcracker
Taking a hint from local theme parks, Central Florida Ballet merged the Nutcracker fairytale with a touch of Cirque and a glimmer of pyrotechnics creating an unforgettable experience.
Premiering in 2001, CFB’s Nutcracker production boasts sophisticated pyrotechnics to punctuate magical moments in the Tchaikovsky composed ballet about a young girl’s fanciful Christmas dream. Fiber-optic technology expertly illuminates moving props while phosphorescent paint accentuates scenic backdrops, delivering an immersive experience. In the Arabian Scene in Act II, an aerial ballet brings the audience’s attention away from the lower portion of the stage as the dancers fearlessly perform gravity defying tricks.
Those unique aspects led CNN Headline News to broadcast a national TV segment recognizing Central Florida Ballet’s Nutcracker as “one of the top five productions in the entire nation” alongside the San Francisco Ballet and USA Today proclaimed the production as “the pyrotechnic Nutcracker”. The San Juan Daily Star praised CFB as “a daring group in it’s approach” and the Orlando Sentinel lauded the production noting CFB “has a couple of tricks up its sleeve”. Additionally, CFB is proud to present Orlando’s only Nutcracker that is currently licensed for performances in Europe and Asia.
Attendees are welcome to visit and shop the Nutcracker Boutique in the theater lobby, take free family portraits at The Nutcracker Photo Booth, and bid on a variety of items and experiences in the Nutcracker Silent Auction!
