Most notably: Eric Carnes from Newington, an Albano trained Principal Dancer, who alternates as the Cavalier Prince with Italy’s Marcello Algeri.
What separates Albano’s Nutcracker from Boston and New York productions is the extraordinary choreography. Joseph Albano is a world-renowned choreographer with ballets in European dance companies. Albano is the president of Italy’s International Dance Competition which is held annually in Sanremo, Italy.  Starring in this year’s  Albano’s Nutcracker cast is Ritsuko Sato from Japan as the Sugar Plum Fairy. Kerryanne Saunders a 14-year veteran with the company dances the Dew Drop and Sabrina Rinaldi is the Snow Princess.
