“It’s one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written. Our production of The Nutcracker is, I have to say, one of the most beautiful in existence. We perform George Balanchine’s production, which is by many counts, the high standard. About four years ago, we did a redesign of the scenic elements and the costumes, and ended up with just a lush and very original production. So it’s really just a very beautiful holiday experience,” Kaiser says.
