Connecticut resident Mimi Stevens will appear at the Avon Free Public Library on Thursday, December 7, at 7:00pm, to read her story book, Maven & the Magic Buttons; How Tapping into Happy Helps Tears Disappear.

Uncasville - Albanos Nutcracker- Mohegan Sun
Posted on: 2017-11-01
What: Albanos Nutcracker- Mohegan Sun
Where: 1 Mohegan Sun Bld., Uncasville, CT 06382
When: 12/8/2017 - 12/10/2017
Albano's "Nutcracker" touts full sets, costumes, props and more. Unlike small student recital productions, Albano's senior company combined with his ever growing, popular youth ballet, join forces with five of Connecticut's leading dance academies to showcase and underscore certain Albano variations, giving young dancers from around Connecticut an opportunity and an experience of working alongside professional ballet dancers to live music. Miku Kawamura, prima ballerina from Japan, heads the list portraying the Sugar Plum Fairy, partnered by Eric Carnes, international premier danseur, portraying the Prince, and trained by Albano. Mr. Carnes' biography includes performances in Italy, Croatia, and Greece. Takao from Hong Kong; Yuko Suzuki from Japan; Henry Seth of the New York City Ballet; Sabrina Rinaldi, soloist of Ariston Pro Ballet, Italy; and Andrea Frisano dancer for the Torino Opera House, Italy and Olga Aru formerly of the Moscow Ballet, Russia, round out this year's featured solo performers. Albano's "Nutcracker" relives the holiday story on Christmas Eve...decorating the tree and sharing presents. Uncle Drosselmeyer presents Albano's signature puppet, Nutcracker, to Clara. Brother Fritz, enraged with the choice, breaks it which unfolds the dance drama in an exquisite Land of Snow and then into the Kingdom of Sweets. It is in the Kingdom of Sweets where ballet identifies with the magic, grace and diverse divertissements that defines its essence, especially for Americans. Albano continues, "It is necessary to feature a full-length ballet with live orchestra; creating the interplay among the dancers and the sound. Of course, the full-scale backdrops also enhance the beauty."
