L.A.'s most amazing Nutcracker is back... and already selling out. L.A.’s most unexpected Nutcracker is an immersive holiday experience for all five senses that delights adults and children alike, transporting the Tchaikovsky classic to a reimagined Land of Sweets high above the city. Once you’ve entered The Nutcracker Suite, you may not want to go home.
Is there a place to see ice skating 300 feet in the sky? Where you can step inside a secret snow globe? Where you can taste sweets as they dance before you? If there is, it can only exist in dreams. Or can it?
American Contemporary Ballet has created a Nutcracker Suite for this generation that has become a tradition for so many Southern California families that tickets sell out earlier each season, despite the company’s addition of more performance dates each year. With its immersive, snow-shrouded staging in a skyscraper and visual motifs drawn from candy wrappers to anime, the company also inadvertently created the most Instagrammable holiday event in Los Angeles.
The one-hour retelling of the Tchaikovsky classic brings the original score to life with some of the city’s finest musicians (many ‘Nutcrackers’ today are staged to recorded music), and is designed to surprise and captivate children and adults alike.
There is no reason to watch the dream of The Nutcracker secondhand, at a remove, when you can be the one to actually experience it -- it's like going inside the music, inside the imagination itself.
