THE IMMORTAL World Tour takes place in a fantastical realm where Jackson's inspirational Giving Tree blossoms with the treasures of the entertainer's inner world. His love of music, dance, fairy tales, magic and nature all spring forth from the tree, bringing Jackson's gifts to everyone. THE IMMORTAL World Tour is written and directed by Jamie King, the leading concert director in the world of pop music.

While the beginning Christmas and family-oriented setting were per script, the professional ballet dancers stole the show. What a nice surprise to have at Fairfax High School. Too bad not better advertised. The theater could have sat so many more. And bravo to Marcela Figueroa who provided a most excellent ballet performance as the Sugar Plum Fairy.
The Fairfax Ballet’s Nutcracker is "a stunning presentation of Tchaikovsky's opulent holiday masterpiece" and has been delighting the greater Washington Area for over twenty years. Professional guest artists from Ballet Concierto de Puerto Rico, the San Francisco Ballet, the Joffrey Ballet and Ballet Tucson are featured, along with students from the Russell School of Ballet. Be captivated by this magical production that enchants children and adults alike.
