Idaho Regional Ballet will perform Lisa Moon’s “The Nutcracker,” with guest soloists from Pacific Northwest Ballet, Leta Biasucci and Benjamin Griffiths (pictured as Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier in PNB’s production). In this magical tale, Clara and her Nutcracker Prince defeat the evil Mouse King and then travel to the Land of the Sweets as a reward. Griffiths grew up and began dancing in Boise under Moon’s instruction. He returns nearly every year to perform this “Nutcracker.”
7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11; 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12; 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 13, Special Events Center, Boise State University. $18-$40. IdahoRegionalBallet.com.
