Metropolitan Ballet Theatre presents "The Nutcracker" and "The Nutcracker Suite"

Come see Metropolitan Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker this holiday season, December 2-10, 2023. 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.
