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.

I loved this event! It felt nice to do something festive for the Christmas season. The production was so awesome! Even with it being two hours, it seemed to fly by. The seats were really good considering we got tickets on late notice. If you are able, you should def. catch this show. It was fun and one of a kind :)
The Washington Ballet's artistic director Septime Webre offers up a vintage take on The Nutcracker that transports audiences back in time to historic Washington and an A-list party on the Potomac -- starring George Washington as the heroic Nutcracker and King George as the villainous Rat King, with swirling snowflakes, to-die-for costumes and Tchaikovsky's beloved score. When the curtain rises on the second act, the stage bursts with waltzing cherry blossoms, dancing sugar plums and other enchanting adaptations that have made Webre's Nutcracker a Washington tradition with raves from the critics and sold-out crowds.
