Once upon a time - more than magic was about to happen the night before Christmas. This show presents themes of human compassion, love, and friendships while spinning a well-known holiday tale and putting out fun, cool vibes.
Moving past outdated scenes from the original Nutcracker, the Aru Dell'Arte is excited to present a diversity of characters, elevate female-elevated roles, and include a gender-neutral approach in dance partnering. Directed and choreographed by Ukrainian-born, American choreographer Olga Aru. Christmas Legend was dubbed as a modern-day Nutcracker by audiences and national media channels. With two premiere shows being SOLD OUT, the company is excited to return to the Washington DC spotlight.
