The Nutcracker

Join us in Costa Mesa, California for one of the sweetest treats of the holiday season: American Ballet Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of The Nutcracker. Travel with curious Clara and her adventurous prince as they journey through a kingdom filled with colorful characters and pure holiday magic.

Created by celebrated choreographer and ABT Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky, this beloved classic brings a cast of more than 100 performers to the stage, and features dazzling sets and costumes by Tony-winner Richard Hudson, accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s timeless score.
