The Nutcracker – Ballet West

Starts: December 6

  • December 6–24, 2019

    Celebrate the 75th anniversary of an American masterpiece that originated with Ballet West founder, Willam Christensen.

    In 1944, critics were stunned when Christensen staged the first full-length Nutcracker in
    America. “We can’t understand why a vehicle of such fantastic beauty and originality would not be produced in its entirety in this country until now,” reported the Sacramento Union. It was produced on a shoestring budget, but captivated a nation. Now, during this momentous year and following a $3-million renovation, see the original choreography, just as Mr. C intended it—and only at Ballet West.
