City Ballet of Los Angeles Presents "The Nutcracker Swings" - A twist on the holiday favorite set in 1942 Los Angeles during WWII

The Nutcracker Swings is CBLA's tribute to the classic tale of the Nutcracker. Set in 1942 in Hancock Park and the iconic Cocoanut Grove during WWII, the audience will be swept away to another world while dancers swing to the sounds of Tchaikovsky and Duke Ellington. In this version of the classic family ballet, Maria, the heroine falls for the leading man, Jim, a WWII hero who gives Maria the Nutcracker doll which kicks off a whirlwind journey of Christmas Wonder.

Under the artistic direction by former American Ballet Theatre dancer and Los Angeles native Robyn Gardenhire founded CBLA with a mission to reflect the diversity of Los Angeles' multicultural community. CBLA's Ballet School offers training at low or no-cost to children from economically depressed areas and provides educational outreach programs to thousands of elementary school students annually., (323) 292-1932
