Why See The Nutcracker?

2018 sees a brand new ballet for Muncie as Ball State University's Department of Theatre and Dance join forces with the School of Music to take you and your family on this traditional Christmas journey! With choreography from Lisa Carter, Susan Koper, Audra Sokal, Michael Worcel and Christie Zimmerman and accompanied by the Ball State Symphony Orchestra.

One of the best Holiday Shows

The Nutcracker is one of the country's favorite Christmas events, and one of the most performed ballets in the world with productions taking place each Christmas in London, New York City and right here!

The story of The Nutcracker was originally written by E.T.A. Hoffmann, however, the beautiful score which accompanies this world-famous ballet was created by Tchaikovsky and received its debut over 100 years ago in 1892. An evening spent at a performance of this enchanting Holiday classic by your local ballet company is the perfect way to welcome in Christmas with the whole family!

What is The Nutcracker about?

One snowy Christmas Eve, at a great townhouse where a party is in full swing, local magician Herr Drosselmeyer arrives with gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker for Clara, the oldest child. When the clock strikes twelve an adventure begins and the Nutcracker comes to life, leading our heroine Clara into a war between mice and tin soldiers, and into the enchanted Land of Sweets where a festival awaits them.
