Gwinnett Ballet Theatre's magical version of this holiday favorite boasts beautiful dancing by more than 100 performers, powerful music and elaborate costumes and sets, a combination that's made this production one of the largest and best-attended Nutcrackers in Metro Atlanta for more than 30 years. Set to Tchaikovsky's timeless score (performed by a live orchestra where noted), the ballet tells the story of a young girl who receives a wooden nutcracker at a Christmas party. That night, she dreams that it comes to life, and together they battle the wicked mouse king and embark on adventures through sparkling lands of snow and sweets. Whether it's your first or your 34th year, don't miss this holiday tradition at Gwinnett Center.
