George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®
About George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®
The Music Center presents the world premiere of the new George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® by Miami City Ballet. The holiday classic, with Balanchine’s iconic choreography, features all-new sets and costumes by Cuban-American artist/designer power couple Isabel and Ruben Toledo. Performances will also include, for the first time, student dancers from two L.A. arts academies — The Colburn School and The Gabriella Foundation’s everybody dance! — while the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus provides live vocals on top of Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky’s timeless score performed by a live orchestra.
