A Nutcracker doll will come to life, a Sugar Plum Fairy will dance, snowflakes will fall and smiles from children of all ages will rain down as Miami City Ballet, Florida’s Internationally Acclaimed Company under the direction of Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez, presents its enchanting holiday production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker TM at the Broward Center – Au-Rene Theater – December 14 through 16 in Fort Lauderdale and at the Adrienne Arsht Center – Ziff Ballet Opera House – December 20 through 24 in Miami.

Based on the story The Nutcracker and The Mouse King by E.T.A. Hoffmann, George Balanchine’s The NutcrackerTM is a captivating tale of a little girl’s Christmas Eve dream about a handsome prince, a mouse king, toy soldiers and dancers from faraway lands set to the beloved music of Tchaikovsky, brought to life by a cast of more than 100 dancers and children.
Nothing short of a feel-good, Broadway spectacular, this elaborate, full-scale musical stage production features glorious sets, lavish costumes and magical special effects. Families will be captivated watching a Christmas tree that soars from twelve to thirty feet tall, beautiful ballerinas dancing amid a live blizzard, flying sleighs, a Nutcracker doll that turns into a handsome Prince and fanciful choreography that takes the entire family on a magical journey to the Land of the Sweets.
With its sumptuous décor and dazzling character dance numbers, Miami City Ballet’s production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™ is a must-see holiday extravaganza for everyone, young and old: children, parents and grandparents!
