Celebrate the Holidays with Ballet Hawaii’s Nutcracker presented with a unique Hawaiian historical theme. Enjoy Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet re-interpreted and set in the 1858 Kingdom of Hawaii.

What better way to celebrate the Holidays than by combining a timeless Nutcracker with the grandeur and elegance of the Hawaiian monarchy. Audiences can anticipate all the traditional holiday dance performances but with historical characterizations of Washington Place resident Mary Dominis and Hawaii’s beloved Queen Lili’uokalani. In this production, the flowers are Crown, Hibiscus and Plumeria. The birds are I’iwi and new island animal performers are introduced, such as the Honu (sacred Hawaiian Turtle). The toy soldier uniforms are patterned after those of the Royal Guard and the famous waltz of the snowflakes takes place high upon the slopes of Mauna Kea.  It truly is a delight to behold!

The inspiration for this special performance came when the creative team learned that Mary Dominis held a Christmas Eve children’s party at Washington Place in 1858. At the party Hawaii’s first Christmas tree was lit with candles as Saint Nicholas passed out candies and gifts for all.

A customized production of this quality would not be possible without the support of such sponsors as Starwood Hotels & Resorts Waikiki, The Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Cades Foundation, and many others.

ARNEL PINEDA WILL ROCKS HAWAII WITH HIS FAVORITE HITS

A Night to Remember, December 16, 2017, A Benefit Concert at the Blaisdell Arena

Honolulu, Hawaii (October 19, 2017) – “Arnel Pineda”, the lead singer of the internationally acclaimed rock band “Journey” will solo a benefit concert singing his favorite songs.

“Arnel is a local favorite when singing with Journey, but he is an absolute legend anytime and anywhere you find his more stalwart Filipino supporters.” Said Via Van Bokhoven, Arnel’s long-time friend of more than 30 years.

From humble beginnings, Arnel’s solo concerts benefits charities from the Philippines, Japan, the middle East, and cities across the United States. Hawaii’s concert is one designated to benefit Katipunan, Inc., an organization that promotes civic education, citizenship, and American values to immigrants.

“As of 2008, Filipinos became the largest ethnic group among Hawaii’s immigrant community, surpassing the Japanese by sheer numbers. The money will really help Katipunan with their mission to educate, organize our people, and help them to pursue the promised “American Dream.” Said Alex M. Sonson, volunteer attorney for the organization.

Arnel Pineda, the tireless rocker, guarantees to thrill attendees with 24 hits like “Jump” by Van Halen, “Live and Let Die” by Paul McCartney, Message in a bottle by the Police, and much, much, more.

“Arnel’s personal story is an inspiration to millions, and his performances are wonderful ‘journeys’ through the music that inspired him,” said Barbara Saito, President of Aloha Group International, Hawaii’s premier concert company. “It will be a real treat!”

**This show will be a benefit event for the Arnel Pineda Foundation and Katipunan 2020.
