The Washington Ballet's ingenious take on this holiday favorite is set in the wintry, historic D.C. of old. In Septime Webre's version of the timeless ballet, George Washington becomes the heroic nutcracker -- which makes perfect sense considering his legendary set of wooden choppers. Set to Tchaikovsky's beautiful score and staged with magnificent sets and costumes, there are waltzing cherry blossoms, dancing sugar plums and other clever adaptations to enchant young and old, making this particular The Nutcracker a beloved family tradition.

We took our 14, 13, & 4yr olds to see the show & they all enjoyed it. My 4yr old was a little scared of the puppets at first but then she enjoyed the music & show. Be prepared to sit on a carpeted floor. Very limited bench seating dedicated for adults only. Short but long enough. Some of the kids started getting restless after half way through.
Show run time: 50 minutes
Age recommendations: The performance is recommended for ages 5 through adult.
Please note: Water-based atmospheric fog effects are used in this production.
