Press Release: Ballet Pixelle Presents "The Nut"
Ballet Pixelle® will present its special "The Nut" ballet opening on Sunday, December 2rd 2017 at 5:00 pm.
This is the TWELVTH (12) YEAR anniversary for Ballet Pixelle to present "The Nut", which premiered in 2007! Come see our new costumes and enjoy a new surprise!
Ballet Pixelle performs its version of the Nutcracker, using Artistic Director Inarra Saarinen's own animations and choreography, and utilizing some of the particular attributes of virtual reality. "The Nut" is Ballet Pixelle's essence of The Nutcracker so you can see just the wonderful, and our truly original, dances.
Does Clara become the Princess to her Nutcracker as he becomes the Prince of her dreams? We see mysterious dances in the white castle. Arabian dancers fly in on magic carpets. A Russian cossack stamps out a dance. Russian dolls roll and play. Chinese empresses and emperors move on delicate feet, and Spanish senoritas and senoras throw themselves flamboyantly. A field of flowers waltz together. And even snowflakes dance!
Performances are Wednesdays at 5:00 pm and Sundays at 5:00 pm SLT throughout December in the Ballet Pixelle Theatre.
Audience dancing at the after-show party every performance!
Join us for an evening of classic, and yet new, holiday delights. Come early to receive your free Victorian party gown or tuxedo and dance on the luxurious set! Chat with the performers and crew after the performance for autographs, photos, and a question & answer session.
Ballet Pixelle® is the first performing ballet company in the virtual global community Second Life®. Says the Company's founder, Inarra Saarinen, “As artistic director of the Company since its inception, I have enormous pride in Ballet Pixelle. Our goal is to investigate and explore the interaction and intersection of physical and virtual dance and blended realities. We perform in the virtual reality of Second Life as well as in the physical reality of First Life.
