The Nutcracker

December 13-24
Music Hall

Cincinnati’s favorite holiday tradition

Cincinnati Ballet’s holiday triumph returns once again to Music Hall in all its splendor. Complete with eye-popping sets and costumes, and set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, The Nutcracker is the family tradition that can’t be missed. Embark on a journey with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince, and follow the Snow Queen and her King to the Land of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier are waiting to embrace you with treats and exotic celebrations.

Take advantage of photo opportunities with Snow Queen and Nutcracker 45 minutes prior to matinee performances (excludes Saturday, December 15 matinee) and 35 minutes prior to all evening performances. Photo opportunities will take place in Corbett Tower which is located on the third floor of Music Hall.
