Choreographer: © Christopher Wheeldon
Music: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Wheeldon's acclaimed turn-of-the-century tale opens on Christmas Eve, 1892, mere months before the grand opening of the 1893 World's Fair, as young Marie and her mother prepare for a Christmas Eve potluck celebration. The magic of the season takes hold when a visit from The Great Impresario sets off a whirlwind journey of romance and adventure through a dreamlike World's Fair.

A must-see tradition boldly reimagined for a new generation.

The Nutcracker
runs approximately 2 hours including one 20-minute intermission.
