More than a hundred colorfully costumed dancers will take the stage for the Virginia Ballet Company's much-loved performance of Tchaikovsky's holiday favorite. In fact, this Nutcracker has thrilled local audiences since 1950, making it the longest-running classical ballet production in the region. Audiences of all ages will enjoy the magical Christmas night adventures of young Clara, who dreams that her beloved toy nutcracker has come to life. Together they defeat the wicked Mouse King in an epic battle, then journey through an icy forest where snowflakes whirl to the enchanting Kingdom of Sweets, where visions of sugar plums dance and entertain.
