American Ballet Theatre
A new Southern California tradition begins with American Ballet Theatre's newest Nutcracker, created by Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky and featuring sets and costumes from Richard Hudson (Broadway's Lion King). A cast of more than 100 performers - including students from our own ABT William J. Gillespie School - accompany young Clara on a dreamlike journey amid colorful, larger-than-life scenery, magical toy soldiers, mischievous mice, sparkling snowflakes, and a glittering Christmas tree!
VIP Sweet Seats are available for every performance and include
- Premier seating location in Orchestra rows A - F
- Exclusive pre-show selfie opportunity with ABT dancer
- Premium box of sweet treats
- Nutcracker ornament
