Presented by Ballet Austin
After 49 years of performances, The Nutcracker is still selling out. The ballet, now nearly 120 years old, doesn’t promise anything new; it’s still the same fantastic romance, the same anthropomorphic adventure, the same classic tincture of sugar, snow, Christmas and intrigue. Ballet Austin’s flawless rendition of Tchaikovsky’s opus – like our favorite childhood holiday memory – is something we want to relive, and we can’t wait to see the light in our children’s eyes when the curtain rises for the first time. Through Dec. 23. Visit balletaustin.org to purchase tickets, or call 512.476.2163.
