Tchaikovsky and Petipa (the Russian ballet master) envisioned the Nutcracker as a sumptuous, enjoyable fantasy for children (and adults) -- and the Rocky Mountain Dance Theatre has always lived up to that vision. Using the wonderful music and generally keeping to the Nutcracker theme, Ms. Fernandez manages to rescript the traditional ballet so that everyone, of every age and every talent, can join the fun on stage--and usually to the great delight of the audience. If you are familiar with the traditional professional performances, then you will be amazed at how she manages to choreograph something for all student levels, and still keeps the ballet together.

In a town of 9500 it is astonishing to see such a good performance, masterfully directed and choreographed to permit dancing by students of every level. Some of the older dancers could dance in any similar company (high-school level amateurs performing locally), including companies in California's Bay Area (with which I am very familiar). It is a shame that the audience was mostly older adults (probably parents and relatives). The Nutcracker was intended for young folks, and exposing the young to such dancing would probably entice more young people to participate (Hey! I could do that!). Ballet teaches poise, balance, discipline and a number of other things which will benefit the students for the rest of life, even if they never dance ballet again (some NFL teams had their backs take some ballet training--so there!). It was an enjoyable evening for non-parents (like me) as well. I have become a strong supporter of RMDT for these reasons.

The local production of Nutcracker is not to be missed! It is truly an amazing show for our little town. I have gone every year I have lived in Cody (except one when I was snowed in) and there is always something new.

This is a welcome community performance of a timeless classic. Full Disclosure- my small - 8 yr .old son was a character. I have seen many Ncrkrs in my life and enjoy these. These are pro leads with the community ladies, girls, men, boys completing the cast. It is well done and I met several- 4- persons that had never seen a ncrkr, and they were pleased.

I have seen The Nutcracker a dozen times, many in our largest US cities. The Dec 2019 rendition by RMDT is by far my favorite. It was incredible! The scenery was perfectly supportive. The costumes were fantastic! The dancers were amazing!! All so very talented, skillful, and sweet. Thank you for the unforgettable experience.
