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.

This production of the NUTCRACKER BALLET was the most beautiful and creative ever ! The music and dance performance was flawless but the children, their costumes, and all the stage scenery was breathtaking. The totally unique setting of Washington DC in Revolutionary time and then to a more contempory time of our cherry blossom peak season for this traditional story was magnificent.
Every detail for choreography, costumes, lighting and special effects demonstrated dedication, enthusiasm and love. The entire cast beamed with pride. I LOVED THIS SHOW !
