Ballet Austin’s “The Nutcracker”
Austin’s holiday tradition returns as Texas’ longest running production of The Nutcracker takes the stage for its 48th year. Follow us into the dream world of Clara, where she’s empowered to slay a giant Rat King and transform her nutcracker doll into a prince. Together, they visit a magical land of dancing snowflakes, a Sugar Plum Fairy and a celebration that takes her around the world in a single night. Long Center for the Performing Arts. http://www.balletaustin.org/atb/nutcracker.php
