MACHIAS, Maine – The Robinson Ballet Company of Bangor will bring Tchaikovsky’s beloved holiday classic, The Nutcracker, to Downeast Maine with a pair of performances on Saturday, November 23, at the University of Maine at Machias. Performances will be offered at 3 and 7 p.m. in UMM’s Performing Arts Center. 

Peter Tchaikovsky, one of the world’s best-known symphonic composers, wrote the graceful Nutcracker in 1892, near the end of his life. The Robinson Ballet Company has been producing The Nutcracker for nearly 30 years, with Machias as one of its repeat venues.

The sponsorship of Kelco Industries, through owner Doug Kell Sr., has been significant to the appearances of the Robinson Ballet in Machias, according to UMM President Cynthia Huggins.

"The Nutcracker has been a great cultural contribution to the area for 29 years,” said Huggins. “We are grateful to both Kelco Industries and the Robinson Ballet Company for continuing to make this presentation of The Nutcracker possible."
