The Nutcracker

Based on the story “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice” by E.T.A. Hoffman and set to the classic score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, this 2-act ballet has become a traditional holiday favorite.

The inaugural premiere of The Nutcracker featuring LABA’s award-winning performance and competition ensemble, Los Angeles Youth Ballet, was performed in 2017 at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, California with guest artists Jeraldine Mendoza and Dylan Gutierrez (courtesy of the Joffrey Ballet).
