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.

The event was fantastic! The Preservation Hall Jazz Band always is a foot-stomping, body moving experience and the Blind Boys of Alabama put on a great performance and sounded fabulous. It was refreshing to see people moving with the music. Thanks to the musicians for a great night of music! Can't wait to get back to NOLA!
A soulful, uplifting tribute to the spirit and the sounds of New Orleans since 1939, The Blind Boys of Alabama have sung a powerful blend of traditional and contemporary Gospel music. Though much has changed during seven prolific decades, the four-time Grammy winners and members of the Gospel Hall of Fame have a global following as diverse and fervent as ever. They are joined on this special evening by the Crescent City's most revered guardians of the New Orleans Jazz tradition, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
