Now's the Time: The People's Liberation Big Band's The Nutcracker and the Mouse King
Even jaded people who've endured enough versions of the Nutcracker to last several lifetimes and music-centric people who are reluctant to attend the ballet will marvel at the embedded video. The sound of the People's Liberation Big Band of Greater Kansas City and the visuals provided by the Owen/Cox Dance Group are spectacular. The sole Kansas City performance of 2012 takes place at the Folly Theater on Saturday, December 22. Advisory- as of Friday afternoon, about 150 seats remained unsold at the 1,050-seat venue.
