Celebrate This Festive Season With The Nutcracker

Alabama Ballet is proud to present George Balanchine's The Nutcracker - the company is one of eight in the world to be licensed by the Balanchine Trust, which ables them to perform this holiday masterpiece. Tchaikovsky's famous melodies transport you to a magical world of mischievous mice and toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard transports you to the enchanted Land of Sweets.

Balanchine's revamped story follows heroine Marie Stahlbaum on Christmas eve. At her family's Yuletide celebrations, Marie is gifted a special toy nutcracker by her enigmatic uncle Herr Drosselmeier. After the party, at the stroke of midnight, the gift comes to life and Marie and her Nutcracker prince are transported to the realm of the Sugar Plum fairy and the fearsome Mouse King...
