Judy Kurtz of The Hill reports that Eleanor Holmes Norton, Democratic Delegate to the U.S. House from DC, is making her third appearance Saturday in the Washington Ballet production of the Tchaikovsky ballet The Nutcracker. Norton will play The Merry Widow.
In the past, Mayors Marion Barry and Vincent Gray have also appeared in the ballet. Tickets still remain for both Saturday performances at The Warner Theatre, but the report doesn’t note whether Norton will perform in the matinee or evening performance.
