Description

Join little Clara as she drifts into restless slumber amidst tiny tin soldiers and menacing rodents, floats dreamily among the snowflakes, and is escorted to the Land of Sweets, where she meets the sparkling Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier. Dayton Ballet’s THE NUTCRACKER comprises an enormous cast, including the full professional Dayton Ballet company, dancers from Dayton Ballet II and the Dayton Ballet School, and over 100 children from the local Dayton area, all of whom have the pleasure of dancing to live music performed by the Dayton Philharmonic. Dayton Ballet invites you to Dayton’s biggest and best holiday performance arts tradition!
