The Nutcracker

Directed by W. Earle Smith

Artistic Director W. Earle Smith will refresh this timeless tradition with new choreography performed by Madison’s only professional ballet company. For the first time, we’ll watch the story unfold as Clara matures into a young woman. Accompanied by the majesty of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, The Nutcracker is as artistically compelling as it is enchanting. Make this the cornerstone of a magical holiday season.
