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!
MBT added our popular short-length version of this classic holiday tale to our season. Metropolitan Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker Suite is a perfect, shorter-length introduction to the theater and ballet, geared to young audiences!
Metropolitan Ballet Theatre has been presenting the full-length traditional staging of The Nutcracker since 1989. We introduced The Nutcracker Suite in 2017 to sold-out audiences at MBT’s Black Box Theater, and took it to the larger stage with our 30th annual season at the Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center in 2018!
