Today’s performances of “The Nutcracker: A Tale from the Bayou” have been pushed back another hour as officials continue to deal with equipment problems stemming from a power outage at the River Center Theatre in downtown Baton Rouge Saturday, said, Nicole Naquin, director of communications for the Baton Rouge Ballet.

The performance scheduled for 2 p.m. is now set to begin at 5 p.m., and the performance slated for 6 p.m. is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., Naquin said.

Naquin said those who have tickets for Saturday but can’t attend because of scheduling conflicts will have the option to attend Sunday. She said the ballet will honor the tickets at Sunday’s shows although people may not be able to get the seats they paid for.
