A true Scandinavian endeavor, the Danish String Quartet consists of three Danes and one Norwegian. Meeting in the Danish countryside at a summer camp for enthusiastic musicians, these four shared a joy of playing music and began their lifelong friendship. Classically trained at The Royal Academy of Music and continual students of classical music, they are “one of the best quartets before the public today” (The Washington Post). Their deep Scandinavian heritage delights with the occasional folk tune that transports you back centuries to the islands of Scandinavia.

Maybe it’s the snowflakes whirling in a sparkling Russian winter. Or Clara decking the Mouse King with a ballet slipper. Perhaps it’s the Sugar Plum Fairy delicately balancing en pointe. Or gingerbread cookies bursting from Mother Ginger’s enormous skirt. Or maybe the Russian saber dancers leaping like acrobats. Maybe it’s the entire magical show. It’s why thousands have made this show a family tradition in the Cedar Valley. Supplemented by children from all over Eastern Iowa, The Minnesota Ballet presents The Nutcracker in all its Christmas glory.  Make it your tradition too.
