Share in the classic holiday tradition with Grand Rapids Ballet as we present The Nutcracker at DeVos Performance Hall! Become a part of the magic as Grand Rapids Ballet Company Dancers grace the stage performing choreography by Val Caniparoli before an immersive set imagined by Chris Van Allsburg and designed by world-famous Eugene Lee. Enjoy Tchaikovsky’s renowned score played by the Grand Rapids Symphony as you follow Clara as she receives a magical Nutcracker from her uncle, Herr Drosselmeier, which takes her on an adventure through the land of the sweets. Become mesmerized as Clara fights off impending mice in a battle alongside brave soldiers and explores the enchanting land with the Sugar Plum Fairy and her gallant Cavalier. After they enjoy a celebration with Spanish Chocolate, Chinese Tea, Arabian Spices, French Pastilles, and many more newfound friends, Clara awakens at home, questioning if the magic is real or if it was all just a dream.
