Nutcracker moments return with modern twists

December 5, 2015

Over the six different versions and 40 years of Cincinnati Ballet’s The Nutcracker, characters, sets and costumes have undergone major changes.

Carmon DeLeone, Music Director, points out that some lost aspects of the show have returned with a new flair and enhanced meaning. Victoria Morgan, Artistic Director & CEO, explains the inspiration behind the “Merlipoos,” a group of rowdy poodles with a charismatic leader based on her own furry friend.
