It isn’t the holidays in 2018 without the magic of Grand Rapids Ballet’s The Nutcracker. The world-famous design of Chris Van Allsburg (The Polar Express, Jumanji), Broadway-quality sets by Tony Award winner Eugene Lee (Wicked, Sweeney Todd, Saturday Night Live), festive choreography by Val Caniparoli, and live music from Grand Rapids Symphony all come together to create pure magic.

Clara’s Nutcracker Party will be held on Sunday, December 16 at 11am prior to the 2pm matinee. Find more info here.
