Methuen Ballet Ensemble brings this holiday classic back to the Firehouse!

Join us in this very special production of Methuen Ballet Ensemble’s The Nutcracker. The company is thrilled to announce that world renowned ballet dancer and choreographer Sabi Varga will be joining this year’s production. It is not to be missed! In addition to dancing in the production, Mr. Varga will be tapping into his creative and artistic talents as guest choreographer for select scenes!

Mr. Varga trained at the Hungarian Dance Academy in Budapest, Hungary. In 1997 he was named “Best Young Dancer” at the International Rudolf Nureyev Competition. After graduating from the Academy, he was invited to join Alberta Ballet under the direction of Mikko Nissinen.

While with Alberta Ballet, he performed principal roles in works by George Balanchine, Helga Tomasson, and Christopher Weheeldon. In 2002, Nissinen invited Sabi to join Boston Ballet. He was promoted to second soloist in 2004 and to soloist in 2006. Mr. Varga enjoyed over 10 years as a soloist with the Boston Ballet performing principal roles in numerous ballets including Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, Lady of the Camellias, Balanchine’s Duo Concertant and Serenade, and Helen Pickett’s Etesian.
