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.

It was so wonderful. It was a fusion of ballet and traditional Indian dance. Love the story telling and their costumes were colorful. I was so impressed by the group harmony and energy excerted from the Phoenix Singh Dance Company. This is what a dance company is all about. Bring group harmony, energy, and story telling to the audience to entice them to want more.......
