Husband and wife team of the Los Angeles Ballet, Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary, are its Co-Artistic Directors and have steered this American ballet company into its 11th season. A hearty endeavor considering live ballet must compete with a never-ending stream of entertainment options, apps and devices. After a history-making tenth season that included Los Angeles Ballet’s intimate rendition of “Romeo and Juliet”, the company once again returns to the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center to perform a holiday treat, “The Nutcracker.”
This is the production that is the heart of Redondo Beach’s year-end holiday season. Whether it is a family tradition or a once-in-a-lifetime visit, your experience of this glittering classic ballet should warm the spirit.
This year LAB offers special Christmas Eve matinees, providing more opportunities to see this family favorite and to enjoy Tchaikovsky’s beloved music.
