AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE TO PERFORM AT THE WHITE HOUSE

Performance of The Nutcracker Scheduled for Monday, December 5 in The East Room




A special holiday performance of American Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker will take place in The East Room of The White House on Monday, December 5 at 10:30a.m. With President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush in attendance, ABT will perform excerpts from the holiday classic, The Nutcracker, for an invited audience of area public school students and children of the men and women serving in our nation’s armed services.

“As America’s National Ballet Company, ABT is truly honored to perform at The White House,” said Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie. “ABT’s dancers are thrilled to bring some of The Nutcracker’s holiday magic to this young audience.”

ABT 'Nutcracker' Toes The Line of Tradition
By Sarah Kaufman

Quote:
If "The Nutcracker" is ballet's version of comfort food, then American Ballet Theatre's production is a big scoop of mac-and-cheese. It's no more and no less than the standard fare: mild, uncomplicated and relatively unsurprising. Since Kevin McKenzie, the company's artistic director, trimmed away the oddball notions that cried out for the dustbin before its last performance here in 2001, his "Nutcracker" falls squarely in line with tradition. It gets the job done.
