Westside Ballet’s The Nutcracker in Santa Monica

DATES: Saturday, November 30, 2019
| Recurring Event (See all)

For over 45 years, audiences have thrilled to Westside Ballet’s lavish productions of The Nutcracker.

From the moment the lights dim, you’ll be transported with Clara to a magical world filled with a Christmas tree that grows to the ceiling, menacing mice, a dashing prince who takes her through the land of the dancing snowflakes replete with falling snow led by the shimmering Snow Queen.

As the curtain rises on the second act, angels in clouds welcome Clara and her Prince to the Land of the Sweets where she meets the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy. Clara is entertained by Spanish chocolate, Arabian coffee, Peppermints, Chinese tea, marzipan Mirlitons and more as they each dance for her.

Small Polichinelles pop out from underneath Mother Ginger’s giant skirt and flowers waltz around the delicate Dew Drop Fairy before the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier dance for Clara and send her off.

Based on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” and the Marius Petipa classic, this is the complete, traditional ballet, from the Victorian-style party scene to the glittering Sugar Plum Fairy.
