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.

pros: wonderful performances, great evening of ballet; we introduced a daughter to dance and she had a lovely time. Seats were good and the Warner is a fine old theater.
flaws: choreography extremely classical; no orchestra (canned music).
A blockbuster bar none, Septime Webre's Cinderella is a spectacle of opulence and beauty, athleticism and schtick, with ravishing costumes and Prokofiev's ultra-lush score… all befitting a world-famous fairy tale. A ballet for all ages, Cinderella has it all… a wicked stepmother, evil stepsisters, a coach made from a pumpkin, a bevy of bumblebees and a wistful young heroine with a tiny foot, who meets her prince and lives happily ever after.
