- Things to Do
The question isn’t if you are going to see this holiday spectacular. It’s when. Christopher Weeldon's Nutcracker takes place in on our very own city at the turn-of-the-century, a mere months before the grand opening of the 1893 World's Fair, as a young Marie and her mother prepare for a Christmas Eve potluck celebration. Brilliantly reimagined for a new generation, you'll experience the magic of the season when a visit from The Great Impresario sets off a whirlwind journey of romance and adventure through a dreamlike World's Fair.
Note: Production runs Nov. 30-Dec. 29. Visit website for dates and showtimes.
