Why see Los Angeles Ballet - The Nutcracker?

A Must See Tradition - The Nutcracker

Reinventing Christmas for the West Coast, Los Angeles Ballet presents its annual production of The Nutcracker.

You're invited to LA's ultimate family tradition, it's the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season. With original choreography by Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary, original set design by Catherine Kanner, and costume design by Mikael Melbye - set to Tchaikovsky's iconic score.

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 midnight, 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 dance festival awaits them as a reward for defeating the dastardly mouse army.

Interesting take on the Nutcracker

Have just seen this at the Royce Hall. Having seen the Long Beach Nutcracker a few times we thought we would see this one for a change. The story and sets are very different. It was good but the background scenery could have been a bit better and I felt the second half was very rushed in the story and some of the dancing was a bit repeatative but overall was lovely. We had great seats, row O 27, 29, 31 and the view was perfect. Royal Hall is lovely. Good ballet for all ages. ... Read more
