The Nutcracker is the perennial favorite of generations of children and “children at heart.” The treasured holiday adventure follows a little girl’s journey through a fantasy world of fairies, princes, toy soldiers, and an army of mice. Thrill to the same authentic Russian choreography that is performed in Moscow by the famous Bolshoi Ballet. Set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved music, including “Waltz of the Flowers, "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” and “Waltz of the Snowflakes,” the entire family will love this magical experience filled with spectacular sets and beautiful costumes. The annual visit of the Russian State Ballet with its performance of The Nutcracker has become a tradition of the Athens holiday season.

Presented in cooperation with The Classic Center.
