Watch The Washington Ballet's ingenious take on The Nutcracker from the comfort of Warner Theatre's premium suites, including waiter service and access to a VIP lounge. Septime Webre's version of the timeless ballet is set in the wintry, historic D.C. of old, where George Washington becomes the heroic nutcracker -- which makes perfect sense considering his legendary set of wooden choppers. Set to Tchaikovsky's enchanting 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.

The pre-show discussion with the Artistic Director was very interesting regarding the Company's formation, mission, dance style, and intended legacy. The dancing and choreography were fantastic!
