Nutcracker 2020

Dallas Ballet Company’s annual NUTCRACKER is the highlight of our year! This holiday season is our 34th annual performance of The Nutcracker. Complete with elaborate sets and scenery, the journey begins with the dream of a young girl, Clara, and her Nutcracker Prince. Through the battle scene of scurrying young mice and soldiers, the victorious Nutcracker Prince takes Clara through the Snow Kingdom and Kingdom of Sweets where they are greeted by the Sugar Plum Fairy and tasty treats from around the world. Come and enjoy this Christmas tradition with a cast of more than two hundred students from the Dallas Ballet Center. Don’t wait to buy tickets, as this event has traditionally sold out before the curtain opens at the Granville Arts Center – 5th & Austin in downtown Garland.
