BEHIND THE SCENES: Ballet West in The Nutcracker – free screening

Presented by Utah Film Center at Salt Lake City Public Library Main Branch

Ballet West founder Willam Christensen (“Mr. C”) staged the very first full-length production of the now-beloved The Nutcracker on Christmas Eve in 1944, at the San Francisco Ballet. Ballet West now carries on Mr. C’s legacy with its annual presentation of his Nutcracker, now the longest-running production of the ballet in the United States.

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of Mr. C’s The Nutcracker, Ballet West, in collaboration with BYUtv, produced this documentary program chronicling the history of the first Nutcracker in America. Post-film Q&A with dancers and representatives of Ballet West.
