The Nutcracker with Ballet West
November 29th through December 1st
Feel the warmth and wonder of the holiday spirit when the curtain goes up at The Nutcracker. In honor of the 30th anniversary of this cherished tradition in Anchorage, Ballet West, the premier dance company that first performed The Nutcracker at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, returns. Their glorious production features fantastical sets, costumes, and special effects that leave audiences spellbound and cheering for more, accompanied by live music from the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra and young Alaska dancers. With Willam Christensen’s historic choreography and Tchaikovsky’s famous score, there’s no better way to kick off the holiday season with your family than this timeless classic. Create memories for years to come this Thanksgiving weekend with The Nutcracker.
