Drawing from the magical 1954 production and set to Tchaikovsky’s incredible score, this co-commission includes the Miami City Ballet company and student dancers from two L.A. arts academies: the Colburn School and the Gabriella Foundation’s Everybody Dance. And unlike most other L.A. productions, this one includes live music, with an orchestra and vocals from the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus.
