Why See Arizona Ballet - The Nutcracker?

One of Arizona's best Holiday Shows

A holiday celebration to share with the whole family! Pirouetting toys, mischievous mice, waltzing flowers and sparkling snowflakes dance to Tchaikovsky's sumptuous score performed by The Phoenix Symphony. This Christmas classic tells the story of Clara and her magical Nutcracker Prince as they embark on a thrilling adventure. Each year Ballet Arizona rings in the season with Ib Andersen's The Nutcracker, creating memories that you will cherish forever.

What is The Nutcracker about?

One snowy Christmas Eve, at a great townhouse where a party is in full swing, local magician Herr Drosselmeyer with gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker for Clara, the oldest child. When the clock strikes twelve an adventure begins and the Nutcracker comes to life, leading our heroine Clara into a war between mice and tin soldiers, and into the enchanted Land of Sweets where a festival awaits them.
