Fort Wayne Ballet World Premiere
Come, bear witness to the demonic tale of Jonathan Harker, a young English lawyer, who travels to Transylvania to conclude a real estate transaction. His destination: Castle Dracula. With his head filled with warnings and blessings for his eternal soul, Harker’s adventures turn dark as he realizes he’s a prisoner facing even darker forces. How will it end? … and who gets the last bite?
Fort Wayne Ballet’s Original
Fort Wayne’s favorite holiday classic! A story of a young girl, a Nutcracker prince, and the evil Mouse King that brings together the whole family for an experience of holiday magic — and a fantastic journey to the Kingdom of Sweets! It’s more than a family tradition — it’s a holiday feast for the eyes and ears!
