12/16/08: The Nutcracker
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – The dance scholar Jennifer Fisher says that The Nutcracker - at least in North America - has become as "regular as clockwork." Some may find it cliche - and for some it may be obligatory. But Fisher argues that Tchaikovsky's piece is one of the most powerful traditions in the world of ballet and that it tells us a lot about the values we share. Tuesday, Fisher joins Doug, along with Ballet West Artistic Director Adam Sklute, for a look at The Nutcracker and the place it holds in our culture.
