New Jersey Ballet, New Jersey’s Premiere Dance Company, presents an evening of works by a variety of contemporary choreographers that highlight the breadth and depth of the company’s artistic offerings. The evening’s performance will include excerpts from Vincente Nebrada’s A Dance for You, and Robert North’s Death and the Maiden, along with Pedro Ruiz’s Danza. Also, on the program are two works created for NJB, Matthew Rushing’s tribute to Count Basie, Hand in Hand and James Kinney’s Civil War homage American Salute.

A lively re-telling of the well-known fairy tale about a brother and sister who wander into a forest where they are captured by a witch in a fantastic gingerbread house. The spunky youngsters defeat the witch, free other children she had baked into gingerbread and are reunited with their loving parents in the happily-ever-after finale.

The evening features the American Masterwork Rodeo, by Agnes de Mille with score by Aaron Copeland, Margo Sappington's haunting pas de deux Waterfront, and Matthew Rushing's tribute to Count Basie, Hand in Hand and James Kinney's Civil War homage American Salute.

NJ Ballet will open its season at Mayo Performing Arts Center, with a selection of both old and new works. The evening’s performance will include the revivals of Vincente Nebrada’s A Dance for You, and Robert North’s Death and the Maiden, along with Pedro Ruiz’s Danzon and new works by Margo Sappington and Jackson Ferreira. This evening aims to showcase the varied artistic strengths of the company in works by a variety of contemporary choreographers.

The Nutcracker Ballet is based on the story “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice” written by E.T.A. Hoffman. Although what is seen on the stage today is different in detail from the original story, the basic plot remains the same; The story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and a fierce battle against a Mouse King with seven heads.

 

Nothing says “holiday magic” better than gathering up the family and spending an afternoon visiting with Clara and her amazing Nutcracker at the Levoy Theatre. For almost half a century, New Jersey Ballet has brought the cherished holiday tradition of Nutcracker to communities throughout the state. This first-rate traditional production never fails to enchant youngsters and grownups alike with splendid dancing, colorful costumes and scenery, eye-popping special effects, and a touch of holiday magic that inspires critics to applaud “a spectacle that never seems to age…magic that should go on and on,” and “One of the best…as good as it gets.”

This year marks the 49th anniversary of New Jersey Ballet’s Nutcracker, making it the longest running original professional production in the state. The production debuted in Millburn in 1971 with international star of New York City Ballet Edward Villella as the Cavalier. Since then, the company has given approximately 800 performances in theatres throughout New Jersey, with more than 5,000 dancers and children, and over a million viewers. Many in the audience who saw the production as children now bring their own children and grandchildren to see this cherished holiday tradition.

 

New Jersey Ballet’s Nutcracker at MPAC will feature the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Gary S. Fagin. When the curtain rises, audiences in Morristown can expect the eye-popping special effects, brilliant dancing, glorious costumes, and the magic and pantomime that has inspired critics to call it “A spectacle that never seems to age…magic that should go on and on,” and “One of the best…as good as it gets.”

 

This two-act ballet is a lively re-telling of the well-known fairytale about a brother and sister who wander into a forest where they are captured by a witch in a fantastic gingerbread house. In a classic good-triumphs-over-evil plot, the spunky youngsters defeat the witch, free other children she had baked into gingerbread, and are reunited with their loving parents in the happily-ever-after finale. The ballet incorporates the beautiful music of Engelbert Humperdinck, including his “Fourteen Angels” bedtime prayer and features New Jersey Ballet’s original “storyteller” narration so even the littlest theatergoer can keep up with ease.

 

 

New Jersey Ballet premiered Don Quixote 2011, and it had made it to the Star-Ledger’s prestigious Top Ten dance events of the year. Don Quixote is rich in Spanish color, flavor, and the laugh-out-loud humor of Cervantes’ masterpiece about an old knight, his squire, and their foray into the age of chivalry. The company chose Don Quixote because “It is a joyous ballet with outstanding choreography by Gorsky; a delightful spectacle popular with audiences,” said New Jersey Ballet Director Carolyn Clark. “It’s also a wonderful opportunity for the company to present another full-length ballet available to the people of New Jersey.”
