Kentucky Ballet Theatre puts lighthearted spin on classic poem

Kentucky Ballet Theatre hopes it's starting a new Central Kentucky holiday tradition when it presents the world premiere of

The Night Before Christmas

this weekend. Conceived by Kentucky Ballet artistic director Norbe Risco and board president Jan Foody,

The Night Before Christmas

is inspired by the well-known 19th-century poem by Clement Clarke Moore about a Christmas Eve visit from Santa Claus.
