Romanian born British pianist Alexandra Dariescu dazzles audiences with her innovative 50-minute creation of live performance for piano, ballerina and digital animation. The world premiere took place in December 2017 at Barbican’s Milton Court Concert Hall in London. We will be the first in North America to present it! On stage will be a our piano, played by Dariescu, and a ballerina behind a see-through gauze screen. Projected onto the gauze and bringing the story to life are exquisite hand drawn digital animations. They follow the music and engage live with the pianist and ballerina as they dance across the screen. You will feel like you are actually in and a part of The Nutcracker story, especially with the extra activities we have planned around this event.
