Enjoy the splendor and beauty of Hampton Roads’ most exciting classical ballet production of the holiday season — The Nutcracker! This magical and lighthearted story of a small girl’s dream on Christmas Eve has delighted children and adults of all ages at the Ferguson Center since 2004. This production has developed a following spanning the eastern seaboard, delivering a sparkling adaptation of the E.T.A. Hoffman tale based on the original choreography by Maurice Petipa, and coupled with Tchaikovsky’s rich, classical score. The production features brilliant costumes and scenery, dazzling special effects and showcases an outstanding cast of more than 80 performers.
