Grand Rapids Ballet: ‘The Nutcracker’ is magical and full of surprises
From the moment the lights went down and the show started, the audience was held in thrall by the magic of Grand Rapids Ballet’s opening night performance of “The Nutcracker” on Friday, Dec. 12. The audience was transported out of modern Grand Rapids to 19th century Vienna and Clara’s fantastical dream. By the time the curtain closed, the cast were applauded with a standing ovation and cheers from an enthusiastic crowd. It was the beginning of a very successful opening weekend.
