The Nutcracker


Holiday magic abounds, as Clara’s toy Nutcracker springs to life and sweeps her off to a land of sweets and wonderment! Fairies and snow flurries shape this enchantment that must be dreamed to be believed. A tale for children young and old, the precious characters and familiar musical themes make Fort Wayne Ballet’s The Nutcracker the very heart of our favorite traditions.

For an extra special treat, we’re excited to once again have the live music of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic December 2 – 4.
