This stunning version of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet by artistic director David Wilcox has been a Southern Californian holiday favorite for 32 years. Accompanied by full symphony orchestra, the Long Beach Nutcracker also boasts sparkling sets and costumes, a cast of over 200, dazzling pyrotechnics and magic effects -- along with a special appearance by Rebel, Long Beach Ballet's gorgeous white Arabian horse. The Los Angeles Times calls Long Beach Ballet's The Nutcracker "opulent, family-oriented holiday entertainment," and The Huffington Post raves that it "enchants children and their parents with spectacle and awe."
Running time is two hours.
