Weʼre raising £20,000 to help fund Brecon Festival Ballet's production of "The Nutcracker" to be held at Theatr Brycheiniog in December
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Brecon Festival Ballet is a new, not-for-profit company that has been formed to present a brand-new production of The Nutcracker at Theatr Brycheiniog for Christmas 2019. Not only will this be the first time a professional version of this iconic ballet has been produced in Wales, it will also be the first time that Theatr Brycheiniog has ever presented a full-length ballet with a live orchestra
The ballet will be created by Artistic Director Katy Sinnadurai, a ballet dancer and choreographer based in Brecon. All principal roles will be performed by professional ballet dancers, with children’s and character roles taken by local dance students and actors. The Snowflakes chorus will be sung by a local choir, and the production will be accompanied by the Welsh Chamber Orchestra
This is an extremely ambitious project that will involve considerable expenditure. We will need to fund the cost of the orchestra, the professional dancers, scenery, costumes and props. We are applying for grants and launching a fund-raising campaign to help us cover the costs of this exciting production… Brecon’s very own Christmas ballet.

What a great idea - would there be a performance that very little, budding ballerinas could attend?
