LAB's The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition in Los Angeles, perfect for celebrating the season with family and friends. Set to Tchaikovsky’s iconic score, this production stays true to the traditions of the storybook tale. This production is set in 1912 Los Angeles there are hints and tastes of Southern California - a Spanish style home, calla lilies, bougainvillea, the snowy forests of the Sierras, the archways of Venice Beach, and a moonlit view of the Pacific Ocean.
