Celebrate the holidays with Nutcracker
Submitted By Marlene Ellis
This holiday season, Yokos Dance and Performing Arts Academy is proud to present its 13th annual production of the complete Nutcracker ballet as part of the Smith Center Season of the Arts.
This production has become a well-known Fremont tradition in which a hundred dancers between the ages of 5 and 18 perform Ð a wonderful mix of talented ballerinas and adorable children. It will be a fully-staged ballet with scenery, costumes, and TchaikovskyÕs incomparable music performed by the Fremont Opera Orchestra, conducted by David Sloss. This is a much anticipated holiday treat for adults and children alike.
In addition to the dancers, a number of prominent politicians from Fremont will be featured in the party scene. California Senator Bob Wieckowski will play the role of Uncle Drosselmeier. Also lending their performing talents to this production will be FremontÕs Mayor Lily Mei, FremontÕs Vice Mayor Vinnie Bacon, Fremont City Councilmember David Bonaccorsi, Fremont City Councilmember Rick Jones, and former City Council member Steve Cho.
