“The secret of “A Newport Nutcracker at Rosecliff” is in its sense of scale, proportion, musicality and good stage manners. As you follow the action from room to room here, you’re so close to the performers that you’re involved in a new way.“
– Alastair Macaulay, chief New York Times Dance critic
See what other people are saying:
“The night we were there, I was sitting behind a little girl […] who was seated right on the edge of the ballroom dance floor. The child was so completely engrossed in the performance which was so near to her, only her eyes were moving following the dancers.” “The little girl stared intently in wonderment at the figure before her, then she caught the eye of the dancer, and the Sugar Plum Fairy winked at her before turning and dancing away. The look on that child’s face at that moment was enough to make anyone believe that magic, Santa Claus, and yes, the Sugar Plum Fairy was REAL!”
“One of my favorite moments was [an] interaction with a performer, when I felt a small hand on my arm and “Excuse me! I’m sorry” as Clara hurried past us to get “on-stage.” I will forever value my experience with this unique ballet in such a beautiful setting.”
