You won’t want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime event! Join the St. Paul Ballet and the MSO at the Harriet Island Pavilion and marvel as the dancers perform ballet outside in the snow to live music performed by the MSO under the direction of Mischa Santora. Snowblowers, ice scrapers, and shovels will all make appearances. The world of dance will never be the same, and you will never again hear Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker without recalling the spectacle of snowsuit-and-tutu-clad dance partners pirouetting through the snow and jetéing over the ice. Dress warmly to watch the ballet outdoors and thrill to the sound of the MSO performing some of the world’s most famous dance, film, and TV scores.
