Dance Centre Kenya Presents The Nutcracker
Dance Centre Kenya (DCK) is proud to introduce to you our fourth full length performance of the Nutcracker Ballet. We are yet again excited to put on a beautiful performance that involves more than 150 students of DCK, guest performers, and musicians. For the first time we will be having live music with Nairobi philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by an American artist Jonathan Rust. We will have other musicians from all over Europe. Baris Erhan from the Turkish State Opera & Ballet will be dancing the Sugar Plum Cavalier. Ghetto Classics Children’s choir will also be a part of this amazing production.
Dance Centre Kenya’s Artistic Director Cooper Rust is delighted to welcome international dancer Baris Erhan of the Turkish State Opera and Ballet, who will perform the role of the Sugar Plum Cavalier. Alongside him, on opening night only, Dance Centre Kenya’s own Joanna Priwieziencew will perform the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy with Artistic Director Cooper Rust performing the role of the Snow Queen.
