Oahu Nutcracker Ballet Performances

There are at least three Nutcracker Ballet performances on Oahu every year, presented by Ballet Hawaii, the Hawaii State Ballet, and the Hawaii Ballet Theatre. In 2008 there was also a "Nutcracker on Ice" performance at Honolulu's Ice Palace.

Ballet Hawaii Nutcracker
Every year Ballet Hawaii produces an elaborate performance of the Nutcracker Ballet with live music by the Honolulu Symphony and live singing by the Hawaii Youth Opera Chorus. The 2008 Ballet Hawaii Nutcracker Ballet will be performed under the direction of Pamela Taylor-Tongg December 19-21, 2008 in the Blaisdell Concert Hall. For tickets to the 2008 performance call 877-570-4400. For information about future performances contact Ballet Hawaii or the Blaisdell Center Box Office. Note that Ballet Hawaii's Nutcracker will not be performed on Maui in 2008 but it was performed there in 2007 and it will very likely be there again in 2009. (An interesting note about Ballet Hawaii: They were founded in 1976 as support group for the Honolulu City Ballet).

Hawaii State Ballet Nutcracker
The Hawaii State Ballet produces a less elaborate (and less expensive) Nutcracker Ballet every year. The 2008 Hawaii State Ballet Nutcracker will be performed under the direction of John Landovsky December 12-14, 2008 and December 19-21, 2008 at the Mamiya Theater at Saint Louis High School. For more information about the 2008 event or future Hawaii State Ballet Nutcracker performances contact their office at 808-947-2755.

Every year the Hawaii Ballet Theatre performs the Nutcracker Ballet at the LCC Theater in West Oahu. The 27th Annual Hawaii Ballet Theater Nutcracker Ballet will be performed December 13-21, 2008 at the Leeward Community College (LCC) Theatre in West Oahu. All of the matinee performances will be followed by a free "Sugarplum Tea with Santa" during which the audience can meet the dancers in costume for pictures and autographs.

Nutcracker on Ice in Hawaii
A contemporary version of the Nutcracker Ballet was performed on ice at the Ice Palace Hawaii December 3-4, 2008 at 6:30 p.m. During intermission, 13 year old Central Pacific Region Intermediate Ladies Champion Crystal Nguyen performed her championship routine for the audience. Crystal's win qualified her to compete at the United States Figure Skating Junior National Championships. To find out about future Ice Palace Nutcracker Ballet and other performances call 808-487-9921 or visit the Ice Palace Web site.

Honolulu Dance Theater Hawaiian Nutcracker
I believe the last time the Honolulu Dance Theatre performed their Hawaiian style Nutcracker Ballet was December 1-3, 2006. This was a unique version of the Nutcracker Ballet that featured King Kalakaua, Princess Kaiulani, ancient warrior battles, the waltz of the hibiscus flowers, and other symbols of Hawaii.
