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.

A wonderful treat to hear from such an icon. Enjoyed his stories about his early days on stage and the greats he has worked with over the years. The movie 'with the nuns' was just one small piece of his work, so it was interesting to hear his thoughts on his Shakespearean roles.
Sound could have been a little better, as it was difficult to hear occasionally. The theater is a beautiful space.
