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 Petipa version. It is coupled with Tchaikovsky’s rich, classical score. The production features awarding-winning guest artists, brilliant costumes and scenery, dazzling special effects and showcases an outstanding cast of more than 80 performers.
