CINCINNATI -- The role of the Sugar Plum Fairy is a milestone in the life of every ballerina and, with every holiday run of "The Nutcracker," Cincinnati Ballet does its best to spread the wealth.
Four ballerinas share the role in a rotating cast during performances Dec. 20-29. In this video inside rehearsal, we meet two of the Sugar Plum Fairies — Courtney Connor Jones and Abigail Morwood — and find out how these dancers place their own stamps on an iconic role.
