Event Description
THE NUTCRACKER
 
Choreographer: © Christopher Wheeldon
Music: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
 
Wheeldon's acclaimed turn-of-the-century tale opens on Christmas Eve, 1892, mere months before the grand opening of the 1893 World's Fair, as young Marie and her mother prepare for a Christmas Eve potluck celebration. The magic of the season takes hold when a visit from The Great Impresario sets off a whirlwind journey of romance and adventure through a dreamlike World's Fair.
 
A must-see tradition boldly reimagined for a new generation.
