The Nutcracker (Winslett/ Tchaikovsky)

Our timeless family classic, The Nutcracker, returns in December to enchant audiences with all of its splendor and beauty. Join Clara as she revels in the joy of Christmas Eve, bravely witnesses a battle beneath the branches of a mystical Christmas tree, and journeys through a winter white forest to the delectable Kingdom of Sweets. As the beloved characters of this dazzling production come to life to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score, children and adults alike will be swept away by the magic of the holidays.

Clara’s tea party

Join Clara and her friends for a special party after select matinee performances of The Nutcracker! Set in Dominion Energy Center’s festive Rhythm Hall, guests will enjoy meeting their favorite characters from the Kingdom of Sweets along with an elegantly seated tea and tasty sweets all accompanied by live piano.
