Description

Audiences will experience a spectacle of towering Christmas trees, waltzing flowers, battling toy soldiers and menacing mice. The enduring theme remains unchanged — good overcomes evil—but Anaheim Ballet’s staging of the family classic is constantly updated, which keeps the production fresh, even for returning audiences.
