Kathleen Rathbun, founder and artistic director of the Syracuse City Ballet, visited the Classic FM studios to chat about this weekend’s performances of The Nutcracker Ballet.  She and mid-day host Diane Jones talked about some of updates she has incorporated into this year’s performance, including the addition of brother Fritz in Clara’s adventures, and the addition of the Spanish dance.  We also talked about the Outreach efforts of SCB – did you know this year over 3,500 school children will experience “The Children’s Nutcracker,” a one-hour abbreviated presentation that introduces them to the ballet?
