A hallucinatory, fiber-optics-lit Christmas tree, 80 pounds of dry ice, and sublime dance performances were among the highlights of last night’s presentation of “The Nutcracker” by UNC School of the arts schools of music, dance, and production and design.
Gillian Murphy, a UNCSA alumna who is currently a principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre, was pure perfection. Her performance as the Sugar Plum Fairy was virtually flawless.
