Kansas City Ballet’s seasonal tradition, The Nutcracker, returns to the Kennedy Center to continue our annual holiday presentation of America’s best Nutcrackers. The company’s production, choreographed by Artistic Director Devon Carney, continues to awe audiences year after year and is hailed as “positively oozing charm” by The Washington Post, promising grandeur, laughter, and a snowfall of holiday magic!
From the moment you meet toymaker Drosselmeier in his workshop, the elaborate storybook backdrops, sparkling costumes, and captivating choreography promise an enchanting theatrical experience. Relive your favorite moments: the grand pas de deux between the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier, the battle between the Nutcracker Prince and villainous Mouse King, and the parade of dances in the Land of the Sweets.
