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

You're invited to LAs 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.
