It was as fast and upbeat as a Pixar movie, its story line crafted to engage even the youngest, media-saturated minds from start to finish.

Why See Atlanta Ballet: The Nutcracker?

A Classic Christmas Treat

Atlanta Ballet's much loved annual production of The Nutcracker returns for the last time as they will unveil a brand new Nutcracker in 2018! Scored by the iconic music of Tchaikovsky, The Nutcracker is a wondrous adventure that has thrilled audiences the world over for over one hundred years. The story follows young Marya as she's led through magical lands my her Nutcracker doll, which has sprung magically to life.

Leading this anniversary production for Atlanta Ballet is incoming new artistic director Gennadi Nedvigin, following the retirement of original production choreographer John McFall, while guest conductor Ari Pelto leads the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra to accompany.

WHAT IS The Nutcracker ABOUT?

We open on Christmas Eve, in the Stahlbaum house. There's music and presents and food, and the three Stahlbaum children are beside themselves with joy at the wonder of it all. There's even more excitement on the horizon though, heralded by the arrival at the door of local magician Drosselmeyer. He brings bearing gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker.

The Nutcracker is far from an ordinary present, and when one of the children, Marya, sneaks down in the middle of the night to check on her new favorite toy, she's amazed to see it has come to life. The Nutcracker whisks Marya away on an adventure which will lead her into a war between mice and gingerbread men and through the Land of Sweets, ruled over by the Sugar Plumb Fairy.
