The sweetest of all holiday traditions is back. Little Marie’s dream comes alive in George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®, and you are invited on her enchanted journey!

She bravely fights off an army of mice and their ferocious King. With her gallant Nutcracker Prince, she travels through a wintry wonderland of darting, swirling snowflakes to the Land of Sweets where waltzing flowers and curious confections from around the world dance for her.

Marvel at MCB’s spectacular production with magic at every turn, a cast of over 100 dancers and children in lavish costumes, and Tchaikovsky’s beloved, instantly recognizable music played by a brilliant live orchestra.

Delight your family and friends with a holiday experience like no other – a chance to gather and get into the spirit while creating lasting memories. For both the young and the young at heart!
