Experience the magic of this holiday tradition

Celebrating 50 years of Tulsa Ballet bringing you this magical holiday experience, bring your family and friends to see Oklahoma’s premiere holiday show featuring world-class dancing, spectacular sets and costumes, plus a thrilling on-stage snow fall!

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 spectacular production is guaranteed to capture your imagination and your heart.

This production will be retired soon, so see it now before it’s gone forever!

A special school matinee takes place Friday, December 13. See below for details.
