George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®

Classical Dance, Holiday

Miami City Ballet’s new redesign of the magical George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® will feature enchanting new costumes and sets by the designer-artist power couple Isabel and Ruben Toledo, Balanchine’s glorious choreography and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. The production, co-commissioned by The Music Center in Los Angeles, will run at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami from December 15 – 24, 2017. All performances will feature live music performed by the Miami City Ballet’s Opus One Orchestra, conducted by Gary Sheldon. The production will have its world premiere in Los Angeles on December 7, 2017. Isabel and Ruben Toledo’s fanciful new sets and costumes will enhance this classic holiday tale of a young girl and her magical Nutcracker Prince, who journey to an enchanted kingdom where heroic toy soldiers battle giant mice, and a glittering Sugarplum Fairy dwells in a magical Land of Sweets.
