The Nutcracker (Winslett/ Tchaikovsky)

The Nutcracker shines brighter than ever with redesigned costumes, heavenly new scenery, and brand new characters— including an elegant Swan Sleigh—all added to the 2015 production of the Richmond Ballet holiday classic. The wonder and magic of the season are set to come alive once again with sugarplums, chocolates, marzipan, coffee and tea, a dancing bear, life-like dolls, and sparkling flowers. From a battle beneath the branches of a mystical Christmas tree, to a winter white forest, and then off to a far-off kingdom of delectable sweets, The Nutcracker has become a favorite tradition for Richmond audiences, and with Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, this dazzling production is sure to bring joy to everyone’s December.
