Description

Audiences will experience a spectacle of towering Christmas trees, waltzing flowers, battling toy soldiers and menacing mice. The enduring theme remains unchanged — good overcomes evil—but Anaheim Ballet’s staging of the family classic is constantly updated, which keeps the production fresh, even for returning audiences. The story is a source of inspiration for audiences of all ages and interests.

This year’s show now features upgraded “riser” seating in all tiers for improved sightlines/viewing experience.
