An irresistible Southern California tradition returns as American Ballet Theatre and Segerstrom Center for the Arts present Alexei Ratmansky’s sumptuous production of The Nutcracker. A cast of more than 100 performers (including Misty Copeland, swoon!) will take audiences on a dreamlike adventure, amid colorful, larger-than-life scenery, dancing toy soldiers, mischievous mice, sparkling snowflakes, and a glittering Christmas tree! Audiences will be thrilled by ABT’s most celebrated dancers and delighted by sets and costumes by Tony®-winning designer Richard Hudson as the ballet unfolds to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score.
