Ballet to Host Preview Fundraiser for New Nutcracker Costumes
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Albany Berkshire Ballet will hold a fundraiser performance event at Berkshire Hills Country Club on Sunday, Aug. 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. to support a costume update to the company's production.
Along with food, live music and dance performance, attendees will see designer Sam Meredith present a preview of some of the new costumes for ABB's The Nutcracker, as it returns to stages later this year. Choreographed by Artistic Director Madeline Culpo, The Nutcracker will be entering its 47th season this year, with performances in Pittsfield, Albany, Springfield and Burlington.
Entertainment will include a debut live film screening of Eric Otto's original work "Cerelia," along with dancers Ruslan Sprague, Rachael Weber, and Mila Krol, Luciella Curletti, and Lucy Gregg with performing choreography by Danielle Price.
Heavy ouer d'oeuvres will be served, along with a cash bar. Gift baskets will be raffled off to help support the company's investment in new costumes.
At this event, ABB will also make a major announcement about the launch of a new community program funded by the American Rescue Plan Act, in conjunction with the City of Pittsfield.
