CANCELED
Through much discussion, Tulsa Ballet has determined that a return to large venue performances is unsafe for both dancers and audience members. This also means that Nutcracker auditions will not be held this year. You can find details in the press release here.

Final year of this version!  Set in 1920’s Paris, the birthplace of classical ballet, Marcello Angelini’s vision of The Nutcracker has been a Tulsa favorite since 2003. Whether you’ve seen it once or one hundred times, this magical holiday spectacular is guaranteed to capture your imagination. And it’s your last chance to see this magical version before the curtain rises on an all-new production in 2021.
