Through Clara's Eyes


On-demand streaming tickets are available November 24, 2021, until January 3, 2022.

In 2020, when Springfield Ballet Company canceled its annual performance of The Nutcracker due to Covid-19, The Storyteller Studios produced a documentary on the role of Clara and the experience of local dancers that performed the part. Through Clara's Eyes streamed live over two months, with proceeds from ticket sales going to SBC. We hoped that Through Clara’s Eyes: The Legacy of Springfield Ballet Company would resonate with viewers and inform them of the importance of the arts, not only here in Springfield, Illinois, but also across the country, and the impact arts has on shaping the future for young lives.
 The Storyteller Studios filmed the documentary over a weekend at the Hoogland Center for the Arts. It includes interviews with staff, students, and company alumni and features photographs of SBC performances of The Nutcracker over the years.

The on-demand streaming tickets are available to rent Through Clara’s Eyes: The Legacy of Springfield Ballet Company from November 24, 2021, until January 3, 2022. Tickets are $8 (plus ticketing fees) the $8 includes a $2 donation to the Springfield Ballet Company 'Partners in Performance' fundraising campaign to help support the 2021 Springfield Ballet Company's The Nutcracker.

We thank you in advance for your support.
