A new, original ballet by Artistic Director, Michelle Sperry

Guest choreographer, Rodney Rivera and resident choreographer, Alejandro Ulloa, create outstanding classical ballet choreography with clean lines, exciting movement and a stage full of holiday warmth.


This two-act ballet production explains a fictional story of how the legendary Drosselmeyer was inspired to craft a magical Nutcracker.  

In Act 2, the toymaker’s affection invokes beautiful performances from the vibrant and mystical toys in his enchanted shop.

Audiences of all ages will enjoy the story, be moved by the dancing and leave the theater filled with holiday spirit.

Is this a Nutcracker? Nope.

This new, original story is our company's  exploration of Drosselmeyer's childhood and his inspiration to creating magical toys & the classical Nutcracker.
