The Nutcracker

Milwaukee’s favorite holiday tradition brings magic and wonder to audiences of all ages. Featuring the Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra and a student cast from Milwaukee Ballet School and Academy. 
The Story 
Marie, Clara and Fritz Tannenbaum embark on an unexpected journey to a fantastical world created by their mysterious magician uncle, Drosselmeyer. Late at night on Christmas Eve, their holiday gifts come to life. Clara’s Nutcracker doll becomes a Prince and protects them from the evil Rat King, they travel through a snowy forest, and arrive at The Land of Toys and Sweets where Drosselmeyer’s dancing creations treat everyone with delightful entertainment. 
For student matinee and group sale opportunities, please contact Milwaukee Ballet Box Office at 414-904-2103.

This ballet is recommended for all adults and children age 4 and older. Generally, if your child can pay attention to a full-length movie in a cinema, they will probably be able to enjoy the ballet.
