The Nutcracker

Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra
Champaign-Urbana Ballet

An unexpected gift transforms a snowy Christmas Eve scene into a shimmering, enchanted land of militant mice, confectionary fairies, and a princely hero. Get swept away on a glittering adventure as the talented young cast floats through Tchaikovsky's dreamy score with colorful pageantry, lively vignettes, and fresh surprises worthy of this holiday tradition.

Recommended for ages 5 and up
