Why See Miami City Ballet - The Nutcracker?

An unrivaled Holiday tradition!

After 27 years The Miami City Ballet's production of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker is set for a magical revamp. For 2017, The Miami City Ballet's all-new production by Cuban-American artistic power couple, Isabel and Ruben Toledo is set to enchant and wow audiences all over again. With brand new costumes, set and design the Nutcracker will be as you've never seen it before! The iconic choreography by George Balanchine and score by Tchaikovsky's will remain the same of course!

Welcome in the Holiday season with your whole family as you enjoy an evening of spectacular dance and magical costumes with one of the world's best loved tales, of the young Clara and her Nutcracker Prince.

What is The Nutcracker about?

One snowy Christmas Eve, at a great townhouse where a party is in full swing, local magician Herr Drosselmeyer arrives with gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker for Clara, the oldest child. When the clock strikes twelve an adventure begins and the Nutcracker comes to life, leading our heroine Clara into a war between mice and tin soldiers, and into the enchanted Land of Sweets where a festival awaits them.
