Madison Ballet is marking a decade of residence at Overture Center with its 2014 production of The Nutcracker, and Saturday evening's performance revealed some changes in both choreography and costumes. Unchanged are the lavish sets, solid dancing and excellent accompaniment by the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Sewell.
