Join us for the Opening Night of the newly re-imagined Nutcracker – performed with live orchestra!
With the encouragement of the George Balanchine Trust, Miami City Ballet has commissioned the magnificent Cuban-American design-artists Isabel and Ruben Toledo to create an entirely new production for Fall 2017.
Supporters of this new endeavor will be able to join us for Opening Night for a series of special events celebrating this brand new production.
PRE-PERFORMANCE DINNER The pre-performance dinner will capture the essence of holiday tradition that only The Nutcracker embodies. Guests will enjoy a holiday meal in an enchanted winter wonderland—while watching Marie, Drosselmeyer, the Mouse King and the Sugar Plum Fairy perform on the Arsht Center stage.
CAST PARTY After the final curtain falls, guests with tickets to the cast party will be invited to join the dancers and creative team on stage for champagne, Sugar Plum desserts, and dancing—all in the glorious surroundings of the new Nutcracker sets.
