The Nutcracker

Young Clara will once again invite us inside her imagination with The Nutcracker, a beloved tradition since its premiere in 1892. There are epic battles, professional dancers, incredible displays of heartwarming joy and the inescapable feeling that you have witnessed a holiday classic that has made audiences smile for generations.

North Pointe Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker is an imaginative staging unlike you’ve ever seen before. The holiday classic is brought to life through use of integrated live narration that guides the audience through the story and enchants all ages with thrilling theatrical elements and colorful larger-than-life sets and costumes.
