Sugarplum Fairies Take Over Rosecliff

The Island Moving Company returns to the Newport mansion for their annual production of The Nutcracker


There’s nothing more elegant than an evening at the ballet - unless, of course, that ballet is performed in a mansion. Every holiday season, Newport’s Island Moving Company stages The Nutcracker, the beloved tale of toys come to life on Christmas Eve, at Rosecliff. Tickets sell out weeks in advance, likely because the performance hits all the right feels: the magic of the holidays, in one of the state’s most picturesque settings.
