The Nutcracker



The Albano Ballet Company is presenting its version of The Nutcracker this season for the 50th year.  It has always been a shoestring operation financially, although I understand the Albano Ballet's performances are good.  This window sign advertising performances at Central Connecticut State University is found in a small antiques store on Park Road in West Hartford.

You're getting pretty artsy here, Jack! But I like. Nice shot.

Re your question about the sweet 16: She has a $50K wedding to look forward to! :-)

I hope they keep their funding. I always enjoy seeing The Nutcracker.

Janet said...

That's the way to get the word out!

A charming display.

I really enjoy "The Nutcracker" very much and I love seeing different versions of the ballet.

Yes, something almost magical at night.

I can't remember how many times I've seen my nieces dance in this ballet at Christmas Jack, loved it every time!

Are you going to go? Ballet usually bores me. Not opera though.

My youngest daughter was a ballet dancer, so I've seen my share, but always enjoy The Nutcracker, part of the season! Great shot and post for the day, Jack! Enjoy a fun weekend, Jack -- and if you're not being good, I promise not to tell Santa!!

So cool! I like the almost naïf look of this window.

I like how they have used their product to construct the window and advertised at the same time for the ballet company!

You have to give them credit with that window dressing.

Michelle said...

Interesting combination of advertising. I like it.
