Ring In the Holiday Season With The Nutcracker

Make this holiday season extra-special with a time-honoured tradition as Cincinnati Ballet's The Nutcracker returns for 2018. Its stunning sets and costumes will delight audiences of all ages, making the Cincinnati Ballet's production of Frisch's Presents The Nutcracker a holiday treat not to be missed. With choreography by Victoria Morgan and music performed live by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, this year's Nutcracker is sure to be a highlight on your festive calendar and a great night out for the whole family.

What The Is Nutcracker About?

It's Christmas Eve and not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse... Except for Clara that is! The little girl at the center of the story creeps downstairs to check on her newest toy, a nutcracker given to her by her uncle, cruelly broken by her mischievous little brother. Much to her surprise, when the clock strikes midnight, the Nutcracker comes to life! Together they enter an enchanted world where they battle the Mouse King and dance with the Sugarplum fairy - all in a hard day's Christmas eve night.
