***** ABT Performs the Nutcracker in Costa Mesa, California *****
A new Southern California tradition begins with American Ballet Theatre's
newest Nutcracker, created by Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky and featuring sets and costumes from Richard Hudson (Broadway's Lion King). A cast of more than 100
performers - including students from our own ABT William J. Gillespie School - accompany young Clara on a dreamlike journey amid colorful, larger-than-life scenery, magical
toy soldiers, mischievous mice, sparkling snowflakes, and a glittering Christmas tree!
