The Nutcracker Ballet is based on the story “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice” written by E.T.A. Hoffman.  Although what is seen on the stage today is different in detail from the original story, the basic plot remains the same; The story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and a fierce battle against a Mouse King with seven heads.

When Marius Petipa had the idea to choreograph the story into a ballet, it was actually based on a revision by Alexander Dumas, a well-known French author.  His version reflects more of what we have come to love as the Nutcracker Ballet.

Based on the Academy Award® – winning film of the same name, this breathtaking show follows playwright J.M. Barrie as he summons the courage to become the writer – and the man – he yearns to be. Barrie finds the inspiration he’s been missing when he meets the beautiful widow Sylvia and her four young sons: Jack, George, Michael and Peter.

Delighted by the boys’ hilarious escapades, Barrie conjures the magical world of Neverland and writes a play unlike any the high-society London theatergoers have ever seen. It’s a tremendous risk, but as Barrie himself has discovered – “When you believe, you can fly.”

Tony® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Hair) directs this innovative musical featuring an original score by noted composer Gary Barlow and Grammy® winner Eliot Kennedy, with a book by celebrated playwright James Graham and choreography by three-time Emmy winner Mia Michaels (“So You Think You Can Dance,” Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium).

Packed with mesmerizing visuals, irresistible songs and plenty of laughs, FINDING NEVERLAND is a timeless story about the power of imagination … and spectacular proof that you never really have to grow up.

Several years ago three musicians from the far corners of the world moved to New York City with the common goal of pursuing their dreams of becoming world class performing musicians.

When these three musicians met in New York City in 2012 a musical explosion occurred resulting in the creation of O Sole Trio, an exhilarating and uniquely talented classical crossover ensemble, that has been taking concert halls by storm all over the world.

O Sole Trio quickly established themselves as a musical force, selling out major venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (who also commissioned their first show), The Redlands Bowl, CA (to a crowd of 6,000+), Ronnie Scott’s, London, and over 200 other venues all over the United States, Canada, and the UK. O Sole Trio features the lush and mesmerizing voices of soprano Erin Shields, and baritone Giuseppe Spoletini, as well as the versatile and virtuosic David Shenton on piano and violin, the world’s first (and possibly only) musician to play violin and piano simultaneously.

From deliciously witty to incredibly moving, O Sole Trio’s shows have it all; they breathe new life into familiar toe-tapping favorites with their unique and innovative arrangements. The trio has garnered rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.

O Sole Trio continues to tour extensively throughout the United States. They are extremely proud to provide educational outreach concerts and masterclasses to children of all ages and economic backgrounds.
