Nutcracker gets some fire
By CHEN JIE for The China Daily

It's like no other production of "The Nutcracker Ballet" you've seen.
The Michael Mao Dance Company will breathe new life into the traditional holiday story in their new ballet "Firecracker," which opens tonight and runs until tomorrow at the Century Theatre.

"Firecracker" is not the story of young Clara and Fritz and their Christmas gift of a nutcracker followed by an adventure into the Sugar Plum Kingdom.

In "Firecracker," which premiered in New York last December, it's a story of two bi-racial children set in 1937 Shanghai, an imaginative journey and later their actual migration to the United States at the onset of war.

Mao, the founder of the company and choreographer of the ballet, calls it the "immigrant version" of "The Nutcracker."
