With a full-scale spectacular featuring more than 100 dancers and children, including several international ballet stars, you'll join Marie and her Nutcracker Prince as they travel through a winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes, sugar plum fairies and an epic battle between heroic toy soldiers and mischievous mice. This production features magnificent scenery, elaborate costumes and the magical music of Tchaikovsky. It's the perfect holiday treat for the entire family. Learn More

Run time: 2 hours 11 minutes (including intermissions)
In a dark and mysterious ballroom, thirty-four dancers waltz to gripping music by Ravel that projects a mood of impending doom. This dramatic work culminates with the appearance of a dark figure of Death, who claims the life of a woman in white as the horrified on-lookers swirl about her upraised body.
The Steadfast Tin Soldier
Based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, this is a sweet ballet about the innocent courtship between a tin soldier and a paper-doll ballerina. A poignant story of unrequited love.
Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux
A thrilling duet, Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux is set to unused music from Swan Lake that Balanchine acquired from the Bolshoi Theatre's archives. Less than 10 minutes long, this tour de force ballet, performed around the world, is both challenging and enchanting.
Following the one-night-only World Premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s commission in March 2012, Symphonic Dances now enters our repertory for everyone to enjoy. This dramatic, fast-paced work, by one of the world’s most renowned and sought-after choreographers, is set to the powerful Sergei Rachmaninoff score of the same name.
