Always fresh, lively, and thoroughly entertaining, The Nutcracker returns with the visual splendor and charming story that make it a family favorite. Set to one of composer Piotr Tchaikovsky’s most famous works, it transports audiences to the enchanting Land of Snow and the opulent Kingdom of Sweets, featuring an exciting new Spanish scene. The Nutcracker includes a cast of nearly 150 professional and student dancers, and features lavish sets and more than 240 beautiful costumes.
Ballet Nebraska’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, choreographed by Oskar Antunez, closely follows William Shakespeare’s spellbinding story while drawing movement inspiration from Felix Mendelssohn’s captivating musical score.
