Los Angles Ballet's annual The Nutcracker is a dazzling display of color, lights and sounds. This production is L.A.'s finest!


The Nutcracker. Los Angeles Ballet’s original production of The Nutcracker reflects the city in which it is based. With choreography by Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary and set design by LA designer and illustrator Catherine Kanner, the production honors the company’s mission to maintain an artistic collaboration that invites all genres to participate.


Los Angeles Ballet‘s The Nutcracker follows the story of Clara and her family welcoming guests to a party on Christmas Eve and the magical adventures that ensue.

Audiences will feel at home yet will soon learn to anticipate fresh variations on the traditional themes. The storyline offers unique twists on tradition, such as Clara’s favorite dolls coming to life as “Marie” and her “Prince”.

The sets, created by Los Angeles designer Catherine Kanner, create the feeling of being inside a children’s storybook; a real place yet fantastical -- warm and inviting. Scenes reflect 1912 Los Angeles, featuring a classic Spanish style home with Mexican, Spanish and European influences. Costumes were created by famed Danish designer Mikael Melbye, presenting the audience with opulent visuals.
