Peter Tchaikovsky, one of the world’s best-known symphonic composers, wrote the “Nutcracker Suite” in 1892, near the end of his life. The family friendly tale of Christmas dreams come to life has become a beloved holiday classic and one of the most popular ballets of all time.
The Bangor-based Robinson Ballet first brought “The Nutcracker” to UMM in 1984 and has since made a tradition of returning during the holiday season.
This year’s performance is made possible by the generous support of long-time sponsor Kelco Industries in Milbridge, R.H. Foster Co. and Machias Savings Bank.
