Tucson’s own resident professional ballet company presents its beloved, traditional Victorian production of The Nutcracker at the Tucson Music Hall for 4 performances only on December 28-29, 2019.

Ballet Tucson’s production has become an annual Holiday tradition. Complete with spectacular sets, colorful costumes, dazzling choreography and exceptional dancing, this production truly stands out from the rest! Ballet Tucson’s The Nutcracker is the perfect event to take loved ones to during Christmas week. Put tickets under your tree for the whole family and cap off the season in a delightful way.

Experience Clara’s journey as she encounters giant toy soldiers, swirling snowflakes and sweet confections from every corner of the globe. The ominous Mouse King and the heroic Nutcracker battle it out and just when all hope is lost, Clara hits the Mouse King with her ballet shoe. The Mouse King is distracted and the Nutcracker is saved from his demise. Out of a dream, Clara’s Nutcracker Prince magically appears to escort her into a fantasyland of delights, journeying through The Land Of Snow and Kingdom of the Sweets.

Based on the famous E.T.A. Hoffman story and paired with the glorious Tchaikovsky score, Ballet Tucson’s professional dancers transport you to a wondrous realm. A cast of 50 local children appear in supporting roles and will warm the hearts of all attending this most festive production.

Prima Ballerina Jenna Johnson leads the cast of 100 performers as The Sugar Plum Fairy. Her Cavalier is Principal Danseur Vasily Boldin.

Principal dancer Megan Steffens also performs as the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Taylor Johnson and Shannon Quirk share the role of the Snow Queen and Isaac Hawkersmith and Charles Clark appear as their Snow Kings.

Tim Kolman dances the dynamic Russian Trepak dance.

Ballet Master Daniel Precup is Herr Drosselmeyer, the pivotal character who orchestrates all the magic.

Ballet Arts Professional Division students Abigail Lee and Riley Reynolds will alternate
as Clara. Herr Drosselmeyer’s Nephew – who transforms into the Nutcracker Prince, is Clara’s escort. This year Axel Schulz and Tommy Lindgren are cast.
