Babes in Toyland

  • Hult Center 1 Eugene Center Eugene, OR 97401 United States (map)

In Ballet Fantastique’s Babes in Toyland, Choreographer-Producers Donna Marisa and Hannah Bontrager reimagine a lost holiday classic with retro-glam choreography, vivacious style, and the company’s contagiously magical wit and whimsy. Victor Herbert’s original madcap fairytale mashup collides with hot swing—played live by the incredible Swing Shift Orchestra—and splashy, genre-defying dance, filtered through the surreal sensibility of Fleischer Studios. A new ballet for the young and the young at heart. Live music: Swing Shift Orchestra plays Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker.
