Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet

American Repertory Ballet      Ethan Stiefel, Artistic Director

Celebrate this holiday favorite with your family! Featuring a live orchestra and chorus!

The Nutcracker tells the magical story of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince as they battle toy soldiers and larger-than-life mice, and travel through a whirlwind of dancing snowflakes to the Land of Sweets. Greeted by the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier, Clara enjoys a suite of brilliant and joyful dances before opening her eyes to the familiar sights of her own home, wondering if it was all a dream.
