Artist of the day: Daniel Ulbricht
Daniel Ulbricht is the Billy Elliot of St. Petersburg. The unlikely ballet dancer practically grew up on stage at the Mahaffey Theater, where he performed The Nutcracker many times.
Now he’s a rising star with the New York City Ballet, but locals can see him perform the holiday classic once again — via live broadcast to movie theaters nationwide. (Look for him in the role of Candy Cane.)
Kelly Ripa will host the production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker and take audiences backstage for interviews with principal dancers.
The show will be broadcast from New York at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Park Place Stadium 16 in Pinellas Park, Hyde Park Cinebistro in Tampa, Woodland Square 20 in Oldsmar, Citrus Stadium 20 in Tampa, Regency 20 in Brandon and Grove 16 in Wesley Chapel. $16-$20 (times vary by theater).
