Review from Meghan Wood

I have seen several different takes on The Nutcracker (including San Francisco and the Pacific Northwest Ballet). This one is good, a larger than local but smaller than others production. The local flair makes it special. I recommend it.

Description

The Washington Ballet’s artistic director Septime Webre offers up a vintage take on The Nutcracker that transports audiences back in time to historic Washington and an A-list party on the Potomac —  starring George Washington as the heroic Nutcracker and King George as the villainous Rat King, with swirling snowflakes, to-die-for costumes and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. When the curtain rises on the second act, the stage bursts with waltzing cherry blossoms, dancing sugar plums and other enchanting adaptations that have made Webre’s Nutcracker a Washington tradition with raves from the critics and sold-out crowds.
