The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker is the city’s holiday tradition perfect for celebrating the season. Set to Tchaikovsky’s iconic score, Los Angeles Ballet stays true to the traditions of the holiday story with some surprises! This production is set in 1912 Los Angeles. Throughout the five scenes in two acts are hints and tastes of Southern California - a Spanish style home, calla lilies, bougainvillea, the snowy forests of the Sierras, Venice archways, a moonlit Pacific Ocean and more! The Nutcracker appears in theaters across Southern California, including the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. 


Choreography by Christensen/Neary, Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
