Nutcracker 2020....The Show Must Go On!
Updated: Dec 6, 2020
Vail Friends of Dance will be presenting a video of the Nutcracker Ballet this year from the stage at the Vilar Performing Arts Center.
With an emphasis on keeping the dancers, volunteers, and audience members safe this year, VFOD has made the difficult decision to cancel the live performances, but is inspired by the creativity and resilience of our dancers and Artistic Director, Ashley Calligan.
The performance will be filmed at The Vilar and will be available to view from the comfort of your home from December 13th at 6:00 p.m. through January 1st, 2021. Please like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram. Streaming video tickets for a single viewing per group is $38. Watch again with an additional ticket purchase!
