Hult Center for the Performing Arts
Our holiday extravaganza once again fills the stage and the Silva Concert Hall with smiling faces of all ages as hundreds of young dancers join the Company to tell this beloved story with its grand adventures taken by Clara and Hans.
With live music by OrchestraNEXT and the angelic voices of the Festival Singers, The Nutcracker brings the holiday spirit into focus, transporting you through Clara's dreams and the wondrous characters she encounters along the way. With the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier as guides, you'll fly away to the Snow Kingdom and the Land of the Sweets, but not before battling the Mouse King and his pirate henchmice.
Toni Pimble's exquisite choreography, Don Carson's colorful and magical sets, and the artistry of live accompaniment are masterfully orchestrated to create the perfect tradition for everyone on your holiday list. This year join us for The Nutcracker Tea, at noon before both matinee performances in The Studio, lower level at the Hult Center.
