Geneva, N.Y.: The Geneva Historical Society is partnering with Breadcrumb Productions to bring back last year's innovative holiday production of the Nutcracker on Friday, December 13, 2019. The immersive theatrical experience will take place throughout the first floor of Rose Hill Mansion beginning at 7 p.m.
Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is a wild retelling of E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic Nutcracker story, set within a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution. Through contemporary movement, vocal and instrumental music, soundscape, and light, we are transported into Marie's world, and the boundary between imagination and reality blends irreversibly while political, familial, and mental unrest grows to a climax for the young woman and her country.
Audience members experience multiple points of view as the story tumbles towards conclusion, all the while discovering hidden scenes and clues through their exploration of the world.
The performance is 90 minutes followed by a reception. Tickets are $20 per person and include the performance and reception. Space is limited and reservations are required. For tickets call 315-789-5151 or go to www.brownpapertickets.com. The Carriage House Gift Shop will also be open during the event.
This is a show you'll not want to miss!
