Nutcracker tickets still available but going fast!
One of the most sought-after theater tickets during the holiday season is for Fremont Symphony’s superb rendition of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite accompanied by Yoko’s Dance & Performing Arts Academy who will perform the Nutcracker Ballet at Fremont’s Ohlone College Garen Soren Smith Theater. Yoko Young adds a bit of whimsy to the delightful story of Clara and her nutcracker by including local dignitaries as part of the dance ensemble.
This year, Mayor Bob Wasserman and his wife, Linda, Vice Mayor Steve Cho and councilmembers Anu Natarajan and Bob Wieckowski will add their fancy footwork to the presentation. Young says, “I thought it would be a nice addition to include our talented Mayor and City Councilmembers. It is very heartwarming to see how involved they have become in the production and they truly help to make this something very special.” As an extraordinary feature, Peter Brandenhoff, a former soloist with the San Francisco Ballet whose credits include the Royal Danish Ballet and the Boston Ballet will appear.
Last year, all three shows sold out. To accommodate demand for tickets, there will be five shows beginning Friday, December 1 through Sunday, December 3. Evening shows will be at 7 p.m. Matinees will be shown at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. As a special treat, a “Sugar Plum” party for children to meet dancers and share refreshments will follow both matinee performances.
