    One of the most endearing stories that ballet companies take on every year is The Nutcracker. It’s a classic Christmas story of how a young girl’s favorite Christmas toy, The Nutcracker, comes to life and beats the evil Mouse King, breaking a curse cast upon him. The girl is then whisked away to the magical Land of Sweets.

    Ballet Philippines’ version, however, is slightly different. Set in the Philippines during the Spanish Colonial era, Edna Vida presents the timeless tale in a setting that’s a bit more familiar to Filipinos and those who know Philippine history.

    You’ll see images of a Noche Buena, Rigodon de Honor, fireflies, bougainvilleas, and the things that should never disappear from any adaptation of The Nutcracker: toys and sweets.

    With costume and set designs by National Artist for Theater and Design Salvador F. Bernal, it’s one holiday treat you should not miss! Oh, and did we mention a live orchestra will be on hand during gala performances?

    Catch Ballet Philippines perform Edna Vida’s The Nutcracker every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday between December 1 and 10, 2017 at the CCP Main Theater, CCP Complex, Roxas Blvd., Pasay City.
