NYCB Vol. 1 No. 13 - Nutcracker

It’s the first 9-show week of this Nutcracker season and we are on show number 13. This one gets me every time: I love a full-circle moment like this. Judith Fugate was Marie in 1966, and was Sugar Plum Fairy in 1988. Have there been other dancers who have portrayed both roles at NYCB?
