An annual holiday tradition at the Barclay Theatre, the Festival Ballet presents its full-length production of The Nutcracker. Set to the cherished Tchaikovsky score, the ballet tells the timeless coming-of-age story of Clara, a young girl who receives a wooden nutcracker soldier as a Christmas gift. That night she dreams that her nutcracker comes to life and battles the ferocious Mouse King. As he and Clara defeat the wicked beast together, the nutcracker transforms into a handsome prince, who takes Clara on a grand adventure to the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Kingdom of Sweets. This full-length, traditional production is choreographed and directed by Festival Ballet Theatre's Artistic Director Salwa Rizkalla, and features a cast of professional dancers and more than 100 Southern California children. There will also be special guest performers to be announced later. Learn More

Family-friendly and affordable, this professional production of the holiday classic features world-renowned guest artists from American Ballet Theatre, FBT’s professional company dancers, and exceptional budding young talent from across Southern California. A treat for the senses, you’ll also experience magical effects, dazzling sets and opulent costumes.
Celebrate the season with the Sugar Plum Fairy, our heroine Clara, and a cast of hundreds as they take you on a magical journey to mystical lands… The Nutcracker tradition continues with Festival Ballet Theatre.
