Los Angeles Ballet Season 10

The Nutcracker

November/December 2018
Los Angeles Ballet Giselle Performance




Los Angeles Ballet’s The Nutcracker is the city’s own holiday tradition, perfect for celebrating the season. Set to Tchaikovsky’s iconic score, you will be captivated as Clara and her beloved Nutcracker battle a most memorable Mouse King, encounter dancing Snowflakes and travel to the Palace of the Dolls.

Los Angeles Ballet stays true to the traditions of the holiday story with some surprises! This production is set in 1912 Los Angeles. Throughout the five scenes in two acts you will find hints and tastes of Southern California - a Spanish style home, calla lilies, bougainvillea, the snowy forests of the Sierras, Venice archways, a moonlit Pacific Ocean and more! Adding to the enchantment of The Nutcracker, LAB will perform again with the Los Angeles Ballet Orchestra at Dolby Theatre for three performances on December 8th and 9th.
