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.

Ranging from the lyric flow of Water Study to the grounded power of Revolutionary Etude, this production underscores why Duncan is considered the founder of Modern Dance and one of the greatest artists of the modern epoch.
Through the artful blending of dance, music and theater, WDT pays tribute to Duncan’s philosophy as a rich foundation from which new dance experiences can emerge.
