The Classical Ballet Theatre of Northern Virginia performs this perennial holiday favorite with a beautiful production that includes all the costumes, scenery, and magic to bring Clara’s dream to life. Choreography by Nell Hacker, Meghan Rudorfer, Cynthia Donavin, and Kathy Beyer.

Join Clara on her magical journey with her Nutcracker Prince to the Kingdom of Sweets, where she is greeted by the majestic Snow Queen, the whimsical Mother Ginger, the exquisite Sugar Plum Fairy, and other enchanted dancing characters in the Kingdom—all after a fun and mischief-filled holiday party with her family and an epic battle between the Mouse King and the Nutcracker after everyone goes to bed.

Our festive production is a local favorite of many and we have sold-out performances every year. Remember to purchase your tickets early for the best seats available!

Join us for this wonderful holiday tradition!

Run time is approximately two hours including a 20-minute intermission.
