ABOUT THE SHOW

“An impressive production that will dazzle young and old alike, the Kansas City Ballet’s The Nutcracker is truly unique and the perfect complement to the holiday season.”

Kansas City Ballet’s annual tradition, The Nutcracker, continues to awe audiences year after year, and is hailed as “positively oozing charm” by The Washington Post. The classic, Victorian-era story by E.T.A. Hoffman featuring Clara, the Nutcracker Prince, Dr.  Drosselmeier and the Sugar Plum Fairy is a magical theatrical experience wrapped with exquisite costumes, grand sets and captivating choreography.

Choreography: Devon Carney
Music: Peter I. Tchaikovsky

Music performed by Kansas City Symphony

Run time is approximately two hours and 15 minutes with one 20-minute intermission.
