About
Dance Centre Kenya is proud to introduce to you our fourth full length Nutcracker performance. This year, for the very first time in Kenya, we have a live Orchestra – The Nairobi Philharmonic – performing the full score of the Nutcracker together with the Ghetto Classics Children’s Choir as they accompany the ballet cast.

They will be under the baton of American Conductor Jonathan Rush joined by additional musicians coming from Europe. Paul Nduati, who has featured in the Kenyan classical music scene as a piano accompanist over the last 10 years, will be the orchestra’s pianist.

Dance Centre Kenya’s Artistic Director Cooper Rust is delighted to welcome international dancer Baris Erhan of the Turkish State Opera and Ballet, who will perform the role of the Sugar Plum Cavalier. Alongside him, on opening night only, Dance Centre Kenya’s own Joanna Priwieziencew will perform the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy with Artistic Director Cooper Rust performing the role of the Snow Queen.

Children will enjoy Sugar Plum Tea Parties one hour prior to all Sunday performances with juice, cupcakes and sweets plus the opportunity of a backstage tour and the chance to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and the other characters from the ballet.
