The holidays are not complete without this beautiful production for the whole family. Called "fresh and exciting, a true accomplishment" by the Oklahoman in 2012, Oklahoma City Ballet's version of the holiday classic stays true to the original libretto inspired by the E.T.A. Hoffman story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King." The Nutcracker brings visions of sugar plums, dancing snowflakes and a host of other fanciful characters to the child in us all. Tchaikovsky's enduring score is performed live at every performance by the Oklahoma City Philharmonic.
Children’s activities will include:
- “Letters to Santa” held in the South Lobby beginning one hour prior to all performances where children will be able to prepare a letter for Santa and mail to the North Pole.
- Santa Claus will be in the main lobby one hour prior to all matinée performances. Families will have the opportunity to take their own photos with him as a holiday keepsake.
- Following each 2:00 p.m. matinée performance, a Dancer Meet and Greet with refreshments courtesy of Braum’s will occur in the main lobby where children can meet, get autographs, and take pictures with dancers from The Nutcracker including Clara, the Nutcracker Prince, the Sugar Plum Fairy, and her Cavalier.
