The Nutcracker Ballet

The Nutcracker Ballet

There's no place like the ballet, especially at Christmastime. Join us Friday, December 7 at 7:00 and Saturday, December 8 at 11:00 and 4:00, as we present the beloved holiday favorite, the Nutcracker, to the Lincoln community.

Nearly 200 dance students from southeastern Nebraska star in our performance that also features a live orchestra and nationally-known guest artists. The classic story of The Nutcracker comes to life with the finest choreography, costumes, and scenery, making this production a treasured community tradition.
