Celebrate the Holidays with Birmingham Ballet’s The Nutcracker - a Magic City Holiday Tradition! Moving this year to the Historic Alabama Theatre… this production features elaborate costumes and sets along with the ambience of the "Showplace of the South" all dressed up for the holidays. Nothing can match the overflowing of abundant youthful energy and good cheer. Dramatic special effects are woven together with heartwarming moments to carry you along on the magical journey with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince. Masterful story telling by choreographer, Cindy Free, brings Clara’s dream to life with a perfect blend of tradition and fresh surprises each year. Always entertaining, this production perfectly blends the skills of accomplished professionals alongside Birmingham’s most gifted aspiring dance artists. Dazzling moments include an elegant flying angel floating gracefully high above the stage and elegant snowflakes twirling while Jack Frost flips merrily 20 feet overhead. The supreme dancing of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Nutcracker Prince is filled with extraordinary leaps, spins, and elegant partnering. Now in its twenty-third season, this Magic City Holiday Tradition is classic entertainment for your entire family.
