cm_petitsouris2Southern California Ballet (SCB), in collaboration with Koi Zen Cellars, has released a signature Petite Souris wine to celebrate 25 years of dancing The Nutcracker. For this year’s production, SCB has invited resident guest artists with Northern Ballet Tobias Batley and Martha Leebolt to direct and rejuvenate Artistic Director Sylvia Palmer’s timeless choreography. Over 100 talented performers from the company, academy, and the community will be featured in the production, including guest artists Dominique Larose as the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier Jeremy Rucker.

Koi Zen will donate 25% of all Petite Souris purchases back to SCB, which will be used toward new costumes, community outreach events, and master classes taught by prominent guest teachers in order to support young dancers and arts education in the community. To learn more about SCB visit For more information or to purchase Petite Souris go to
