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.

Committed: rebirth of tradition.
The Sankofa Chronicles is a classic tale of a rebellious youth, time travel, a vibrant dancing village, and a joyous lesson learned. This African opera is a full concert production where dancers, singers, and musicians perform a dramatic work using the rich traditions of authentic African dance and drum, as well as a new world African art fusion of movement and music.

The work of the Company is rooted in the definition of the word Sankofa which means to learn from the past in an effort to build for the future. Sankofa Dance Theater reaches back into the rich legacy of African culture and history to move forward into greater intercultural awareness for the global community.
