The Nutcracker, a perennial holiday favorite, is a captivating adventure through a little girl’s fantasy world filled with fairies, princes, toy soldiers, and an army of endearing mice. Audiences will be transported by this stunning full-scale production featuring Pyotr Tchaikovsky's wondrous score, choreography by world-renowned Marius Petipa and The Mariinsky’s Vasily Vainonen, and 40 of Russia’s brightest ballet stars in glorious costumes.
