Ballet Tucson's Sugar Plum Tea ~ December 7

Join us on Sunday, December 7, Ballet Tucson will host its 14th Annual Sugar Plum Tea. Gingerbread and confections of every kind will transform the ballroom at the Marriott University Park into a magical setting for this hallmark holiday event. Join Ballet Tucson artists along with the Sugar Plum Fairy, Clara, and other characters from The Nutcracker ballet in celebrating the holidays with sights and sounds of the season and delights for the whole family.

We went last year and it was a very special experience. A great time for the kids to get dressed up and have hot chocolate with a large spread of fabulous petit fours and desserts.

There are extraordinary silent auction items and unique gifts. We purchased the Nutcracker themed ornaments including Clara.

 A narration from The Nutcracker story with characters from the ballet, and a live performance by Ballet Tucson’s talented professional dancers will delight everyone. I also think this is a much better option for smaller children than the full ballet if they may become boisterous during the calm scenes- I know from experience :) 

 The entertainment highlight for this year’s event is Ronstadt Generations. Representing five generations in North America, Ronstadt Generations continues the family’s musical traditions with Michael J. Ronstadt (younger brother of Linda) and his son, Petie. Multi-instrumentalists and solo performers in their own right, they present an exciting repertoire that preserves the traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs of their heritage while offering innovative original material. Additional live musical entertainment will by provided by renowned harpist Christine Vivona.
