Houston Repertoire Ballet (HRB), Houston’s premier pre-professional ballet company, celebrates its 22nd season, beginning with its 16th annual performance series of The Nutcracker, featuring professional guest artists Yuriko Kajiya, as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Jared Matthews as the Cavalier, Andrew Taft as the Snow King, and Joe Modlin as Herr Drosselmeyer, with the Cypress Philharmonic directed by Glynnes Lanthier.
The Nutcracker’s brilliant blend of beautiful costumes, lavish sets, and fresh choreography creates a magical storybook world enjoyed by children and adults alike. With a cast of more than 100 HRB dancers and area children, and live music played by Cypress Philharmonic, HRB’s masterful production is the highlight of the holidays!
HRB dancers are committed to sharing the arts with the community. Community engagement events include costumed appearances at various nursing homes, group events, and at Arts & Education performances. HRB brings two matinee performances to Tomball ISD third grade students, fulfilling the arts component of their curriculum.
