Southern California's only Nutcracker production with a full symphony orchestra stars So You Think You Can Dance finalist Melissa Sandvig and Seth Orza, principal dancer with the Pacific Northwest Ballet. Now in its 31st season, this stunning version of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet by artistic director David Wilcox also boasts sparkling sets and costumes, dazzling pyrotechnics and magic effects -- along with a special appearance by Rebel, Long Beach Ballet's gorgeous white Arabian horse. The Los Angeles Times calls it "opulent, family-oriented holiday entertainment." Learn More

This was a fun night. There were three segments to this production. The first had several flaws or mishaps in staging and technique. In fact I almost left after the first segment but I did and I am so pleased I stayed. The last two segments were exquisite, not the best ballet ever but energetic, vibrant with much better staging and technique. So if you see this production expect that there may be some discrepancies in quality from segment to segment, but over all the show is well worth the goldstar price!

About the Ticket Supplier: Los Angeles Ballet
The debut of Los Angeles Ballet on December 2, 2006, was met with standing ovations and critical acclaim. "A Company is Born", declared LA Times dance critic Lewis Segal in his December 4, 2006 review. "... there's plenty of promise in the homegrown production by company artistic directors Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary."
Los Angeles Ballet's original production of The Nutcracker reflects the city in which it is based. It introduced the first of many seasons of ballet made fresh, alluring, and entertaining. With choreography by Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary and set design by LA designer and illustrator Catherine Kanner, the production is the first to honor the company's mission to establish an artistic collaboration that invites all genres to participate. Choreographers, composers, dancers, musicians, and set, costume and lighting designers, come together in Los Angeles Ballet for a new era of performing arts innovation.
