Description

Delight family and friends at Southern California’s most spectacular holiday production of The Nutcracker. Celebrating their 15th season, critically acclaimed Inland Pacific Ballet brings The Nutcracker to life with more than 80 dancers on stage at magnificent Bridges Auditorium.

This annual yuletide ballet features a young girl named Clara who receives a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve, and sets out on a wondrous journey to the Land of the Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets. Toy soldiers, life-sized dancing dolls, and a fantastic dream with battling mice, dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers, and the delightful Sugar Plum Fairy stir the imagination. IPB’s The Nutcracker is the holiday tradition your family will treasure!
