Long Beach Ballet’s The Nutcracker With Full Symphony Orchestra

Accompanied by a full symphony orchestra, the Long Beach Nutcracker also boasts sparkling sets and costumes, a cast of over 250, dazzling pyrotechnics and magic effects along with a special appearance by Rebel, Long Beach Ballet’s gorgeous white Arabian horse.
