The Nutcracker

At Open World we work to create beauty in every possible way. It comes in the form of a performance, a regular class, exhibition or workshop, new friendships or just cherishing memories of old ones. This holiday season has been a bitter sweet one. While we paid tribute to an old friend and colleague Robert Underwood, we were proud to care for and pass on to the younger generation his love for ballet and art, together with his creation of the " Nutcracker" at Ballet Theater Houston.

Open World is grateful to all of the dancers, parents, volunteers and everyone who came to support our tasks in order to make this year's "Nutcracker" possible! It was a very beautiful performance and, we are grateful for the opportunity to direct and stage it in the best classical tradition possible, carrying forward our knowledge, passion and love together with the vision of our dear friend Robert Underwood.
