The production is a collaborative Holiday celebration directed by Ingrid Bond and involves over 150 cast members and volunteers from across county lines. Tschaikovsky’s score and the ballet premiered at nearly the same time the Ramsdell was built.

The brief solo called, “Dance of the SugarPlum Fairy ” is the original Marius Petipa choreography. It was gifted to Ingrid through Carol Greenaway, a Frankfort native who had an incredible ballet career. The solo was taught and gifted to her by the legendary Alexandra Danilova.
