The Nutcracker

Presented by The Cleveland Ballet

After one year in hiatus, the holiday favorite ballet The Nutcracker returns to Playhouse Square's Connor Palace. With only 5 performances, this magical production of the Cleveland Ballet, promises to enchant and inspire all audiences.

A production suitable to audiences of all ages, this production is Cleveland’s very own and is one to not be missed. The ballet in 2 acts is based on the original story of E.T.A. Hoffman with music composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The fascination of Tchaikovsky’s score and the suitability of the theme for Christmas entertainment, has inspired many choreographers including Cleveland Ballet’s own Artistic Director Gladisa Guadalupe who has created a version with a twist!
