Don’t miss the Detroit premiere of the Cincinnati Ballet’s original yet tradition-honoring production of The Nutcracker. The elaborate scenery, whimsical stage effects and awe-inspiring acrobatics fill the ballet “with a sense of humor, love and wonder that pulls the affair together.” (The Washington Post)

Featuring the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra, this is Detroit’s original and only live Nutcracker — the way Tchaikovsky intended! Matinées include fun family activities before the performance.

Carmon DeLeone conductor, Victoria Morgan artistic director

“The Nutcracker is now a 21st century spectacle! Bright, high-tech and filled with imagery!”
-David Lyman, Cincinnati Enquirer
