HGCBT's Holiday Performance a Huge Hit!
On December 16, 2023 Hope Garden Children's Ballet Theater presented their newest and most bold performance yet. "A Winter’s Eve" united a global Christmas classic with an original adaptation of a British holiday story to present broad cultural representations of the joy and love of the holidays!
In act one HGCBT Artistic Director and Choreographer Claire Jones interpreted Raymond Briggs' illustrated classic "The Snowman" for dance, transporting the audience into a wondrous world of seasonal celebrations! The Snowman explores the world with his young friend to experience other cultures celebrating the season, including Kwanzaa, observed through African/modern dance, Hanukkah with traditional Israeli dance, and Diwali through traditional Indian dance.
Act two featured excerpts from the timeless and traditional ballet, Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker.” The dancers transported the audience into Clara's dream, presenting the Land of the Sweets, featuring our Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier, journeying to lands around the globe through exquisite and timeless classical ballet.
