Nashville's Nutcracker

When: Dec. 8-23 2012

Nashville Ballet’s newest holiday tradition, its own reworking of Tchaikovsky’s beloved holiday piece, launches year five with additional performances and an expanded youth cast. Artistic director/CEO Paul Vasterling’s updated version once again celebrates Music City’s rich history and character, as all 46 members of the ballet’s first and second companies join with more than 170 young dancers from the School of Nashville Ballet and the community at large to relate the story of the youngster Clara’s magical journey — from her trip to the 1897 Centennial Exposition, to her encounter with the amazing Uncle Drosselmeyer, through her series of fantastic dreams.
