Bitter cold frosts ballet


CASPER, Wyo.—It got so cold in Wyoming, even the Moscow Ballet couldn’t move.

The travelling group famous for performing “The Nutcracker” this time of year couldn’t start their buses yesterday morning in Casper.

The temperature there plunged to 31 degrees below zero F overnight.

The group’s bus and equipment trucks had to be defrosted over several hours.

The delay, and worries about driving over snowy passes in Colorado, prompted the troupe to cancel a performance last night in Grand Junction.

It still plans to perform tonight and Saturday in Denver.
