The New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company (NMDT–PC), directed by Susan Baker-Dillingham, will present its first production of the holiday classic “The Nutcracker” on Nov. 9, 10, 11, 17 and 18 at the Duane W. Smith Auditorium.
“NMDT-PC dancers have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to perform my version of this much-loved ballet,” Baker-Dillingham said. “I hope NMDT–PC’s premiere of
‘The Nutcracker’ will renew and rejuvenate your enthusiasm for this holiday favorite and prepare you for the joys of the season.”
NMDT-PC is known in the Los Alamos community for presenting both original and traditional ballets, including “Dracula,” “Snow White,” “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” “Cinderella,” “The Sleeping Beauty,” “Alice,” “Aladdin” and “A Christmas Carol.”
NMDT–PC, joined by special guests from the NMDT School, will now add Baker-Dillingham’s version of “The Nutcracker” to its repertoire.
Using her own 20-year dance career as a model, Baker-Dillingham said she bases every NMDT–PC production on a professional dance company setting, providing the dancers, the Los Alamos community and surrounding areas with “unmatched quality.”
