December 9-23, 2023
Following two years of record-breaking box office success, Val Caniparoli’s and Ma Cong’s energetic and colorful production of the holiday classic will delight Tulsa audiences of all ages. Join us for this story of a young girl’s magical journey on Christmas Eve, set in 19th century Germany. From the epic battle between the Nutcracker Prince’s army of toy soldiers and the Mouse King’s rodent minions, to the enchanting land of the Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy’s Kingdom of Sweets, a cast of over 100 local children joins the dancers of Tulsa Ballet to create a lifetime of memories. The Nutcracker is sponsored by The H.A. and Mary K. Chapman Charitable Foundations and the Suzanne and Jim Kneale Family Foundation.
Be a part of the holiday magic by attending one of the Nutcracker Holiday Teas this season. This festive event will be held one hour prior to the matinee performances. Join us for a merry experience complete with tea sandwiches, goodies, and of course, tea. Someone from the Land of Sweets may even stop by for photo ops!
Help make holiday memories by attending the tea before watching The Nutcracker production.
Join us for a VIP Experience in our Winter Wonderland! Tulsa Ballet has turned the Westby Pavilion into a magnificent world of holiday cheer, with photo opportunities and live characters to ensure you remember this enchanted experience for years to come.
