December 4, 2012 by Sarah
The North Carolina State Ballet recently announced that it will be returning to Fayetteville this December with a production of ‘The Nutcracker’ at the Crown Theatre. The Ballet is no doubt using poster printing and flyer printing to publicize this event to both the public and the local schools as there will be special performances for schools on December 7, and performances for the general public on December 8 and 9.
According to the primary choreographer and director of the Ballet, Charlotte Blume, the production includes a cast of 65 people and this includes both professional ballerinas and dancers from the local area. There will also be featured guest artists hailing from different countries throughout the word, such as Alicia Fabry, Gabor Kapin, Sokvanna Sar, and Margaret Severin-Hansen.
Kapin and Sar will be sharing the role of Cavalier. Kapin received his training from the Hungarian Dance Academy and Sar studied at the School of American Ballet in New York. In 2011, Sar became part of the Carolina Ballet.
The Sugar plum Fairy’s role will be shared between Fabry and Severin-Hann in the performances for the public. Fabry studied ballet at the English Ballet School and became a soloist in 2006 for the Carolina Ballet. Severin-Hansen started ballet at the huntington School of Ballet on Long Island and later with Royal Danish Ballet. In 1998, she joined the Carolina Ballet.
Deprecia Simpson and Ashley Watters are local dancers who will share the role of the Flower Queen. Other local dancers include Mary Maxton-Fowler and Jane Violette.
