Ballet West's The Nutcracker
Ballet West’s production of The Nutcracker creates a magical storybook world thanks to Victorian scenery and costumes, Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, and invigorating choreography. Willam Christensen’s beloved production is performed with a live orchestra, a children’s choir, and a host of young dancers from the DC area.
