Metropolitan Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker is a fun family tradition that will lift your spirits this holiday season!

Rated a “Best Bet for Holiday Entertainment in and around DC” by DC Metro Theater Arts!

Metropolitan Ballet Theatre has been presenting the full-length traditional staging of The Nutcracker at the Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center in Rockville at Montgomery College since 1989.  Year after year, audiences are enchanted by MBT’s performances which feature student and professional dancers, fabulous costumes, and beautiful scenery – including a Christmas tree that seemingly grows forever, magical dancing dolls, marching toy soldiers, giant mice, a dazzling blizzard with dancing snowflakes and a land of luscious sweets. MBT is thrilled to be able to keep the tradition and magic of The Nutcracker alive during this challenging time for all arts organizations. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the season!
