The Miami City Ballet will preset a holiday production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker from December 14-16 at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale and from December 20-24 at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami.

Under the direction of artistic director Lourdes Lopez, Florida’s internationally acclaimed Miami City Ballet will present George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker, performed by students of the prestigious Miami City Ballet school from Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

In an elaborate, full-scale musical stage production, the Miami City Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker will feature “glorious sets, lavish costumes and magical special effects”, according to a press release.

George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker is a “captivating tale of a little girl’s Christmas Eve dream about a handsome prince, a mouse king, toy soldiers and dancers from faraway lands set to the beloved music of Tchaikovsky.” More than 100 dancers and children will take part in the production, which is being dubbed a “must-see holiday extravaganza for everyone, young and old: children, parents and grandparents.”

Tickets range in price from $20 to $74 and are available online at miamicityballet.org, at the Miami City Ballet box office (305-929-7019 or 877-929-7010), at the Adrienne Arsht Center, the Broward Center or in person at 2220 Liberty Avenue, Miami Beach Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
