Loyce Houlton’s Nutcracker Fantasy
Minnesota’s Longest Running Holiday Event Returns
2013 marks the 49th anniversary of Loyce Houlton’s Nutcracker Fantasy performances in the Twin Cities, one step from the remarkable landmark of its golden half-century. Holding the distinction of the longest-running holiday arts event in Minnesota history, MDT announces its return to the Historic State Theater in downtown Minneapolis with the 44 piece Nutcracker Orchestra led by Phillip Brunelle!
Enchanting Audiences for 49 Years
The story begins at a Christmas party in 19th century Germany, and unfolds through the eyes of Marie. Her wizardly Godfather Drosselmayer weaves a magical fantasy, taking her on an extraordinary adventure to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Experience the brilliant music of Tchaikovsky and the beautiful choreography of Loyce Houlton – one of Minnesota’s most treasured holiday experiences.
“One of the nation’s 10 best Nutcrackers.” – Jack Anderson, The New York Times
“… A marvel of balletic storytelling”- Mike Steele, Minneapolis Star Tribune
