Show Description

It’s one thing to dream. But when those dreams explode into implausible dimensions of dance and pageantry, you have Michael Pink’s The Nutcracker. Tchaikovsky’s magical score, masterfully performed by the Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra, leads you through one incredible scene after another of a spectacular journey where mice battle soldiers, toys spring to life and children gape in slackjawed awe. Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy performers add charm and depth.
