For the 20th year in a row, Atlanta Ballet's Nutcracker extravaganza comes to glorious life on the sparkling stage at the legendary Fox Theater. Complete with beautiful fairies, handsome princes, dancing snowflakes and a lovely young girl making her way to the Sugar Candy Kingdom, this gorgeous ballet is the perfect way to celebrate the season. With choreography by John McFall and Tchaikovsky's delightful score played live by the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra, this holiday treat has been enchanting generations of Atlanta families for more than 50 years. Adding to the excitement, the Georgia Youth Choir will lend its talents to Act I's "Snow Scene."
Running time is approximately two hours, which includes a 25-minute intermission.
