We chat with ballerina/audition director Anna Trafimova about this production.

Do you have a favorite moment in The Nutcracker?

It is definitely the final bow. When you stay in front of thousands of people who applaud you. These unbelievable feelings are happy and give a boost of energy.

What do you hope the audience takes away from seeing The Nutcracker?

I hope everyone takes what they actually need. We try to make a miracle on stage to let everybody live their own fairytale. And as we know it is different for every person.

Have you been to Minnesota before? Any favorite places here?

This is my 5th time here in Minneapolis but I've only seen the theatre. When on tour unfortunately we don't have time to see the city. But hopefully one day I'll walk down these streets.

Thank you Anna for your time! We look forward to The Nutcracker.
