For many families, the holiday season isn’t complete
without a trip to experience The Nutcracker ballet, a whimsical performance
whose music, dance and costumes have captured the hearts of generation after
generation. Originally composed by Tchaikovsky over a hundred years ago, the
story of The Nutcracker will be retold by Los Angeles ballet companies at
performance venues all over town throughout the month of December, including
Alex Theatre, Carpenter Performing Arts Center, UCLA’s Royce Hall, Valley
Performing Arts Center and Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center.
A magical tale of Christmas toys that come to life, The Nutcracker
ballet in Los Angeles is a sweet holiday treat. Much more than a ballet, this
enchanting performance features opulent costumes, elaborate stage sets and
playful choreography. Along with classic Christmas symphony music from one of
the greatest composers ever, The Nutcracker offers a festive occasion to dress
up and immerse yourself in a sparkling theatrical performance.
