For more than 25 years, the Anaheim Ballet has gotten the holiday season off to a spectacular start with its production of Tchaikovsky's timeless dance. From towering Christmas trees to menacing mice and more, this version of the quintessential family favorite is always updated to bring fresh thrills to audiences, who can't help but get wrapped up in the magical story of young Clara. She dreams that her new toy nutcracker soldier has come to life, and together they experience a fantastical adventure that leads them through an epic battle with the Mouse King to reach the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Kingdom of Sweets. The production is accompanied by a live performance from Symphony Irvine. Learn More

The performance was spectacular and made me proud to be an American Veteran. The atmosphere of the Grove made it all the more enjoyable because it provided a venue with an intimacy with the artist. The food and drinks were well-prepared, inexpensive, and I truly enjoyed this show.
4 Troops is comprised of Former Army Sergeants Daniel Jens, Ron Henry, David Clemo and former Captain Meredith Melcher, all of whom were deployed to the middle east. Upon returning from the army, these individuals decided to use their experiences to inspire resilience to the men and women who serve their country through song. “There are very few things in life that can actually move you and music is one of those things” says former Sergeant David Clemo. “These songs hopefully will help with that healing and help people deal with whatever stresses they went through.”
The music of 4 Troops is storytelling at its best. Their music shares their personal stories about the ongoing war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Not only does it give the average civilian a better understanding into the sacrifices it takes to defend the country, it also speaks to military families directly. “I look out into the audience and ninety percent of them have tears in their eyes” says former Sergeant Daniel Jens. The audience’s immediate reaction to the 4 Troops is a testament to their stirring live performance.
