The Nutcracker Ballet   -   This classic holiday fairy tale has come alive on stage at Stephens Auditorium each December for 35 years.

This annual Iowa State Center production features choreography by Robert Thomas and Miyoko Kato Thomas of the Dancenter (Ames); over 200 local dancers from surrounding central Iowa communities; and principal dancers performing the roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.

The Nutcracker Ballet tells the story of a young girl, a heroic prince, and the fantastic dream they share. From the opening party scene to the last tinkling notes of Tchaikovsky's famous score, a festive holiday spirit permeates the whole performance.

Saturday, December 12 at 1:30 pm and 7:30 pm
Sunday, December 13 at 1:30 pm.
