The Nutcracker is the classic tale of adventure, fantasy, romance, and the triumph of good over evil. For more than 175 years, E.T.A Hoffman’s story of Clara and her Nutcracker prince has delighted children of all ages. Performed in the opulent setting of Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox with the Spokane Symphony Orchestra and nationally recognized State Street Ballet of Santa Barbara, California, this production of the Nutcracker’s story enchants as never before.

State Street Ballet is honored and excited to be accompanied by a live orchestra for this annual holiday tradition!  Hearing Tchaikovsky's magical score this way is a rare treat and enhances the aesthetic experience for dances and audiences alike.

This performance of The Nutcracker is unique in that the exquisite music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky is performed live by the Spokane Symphony. The tapestry of sound generated by a live orchestra intensifies the audience's experience of this classic dance the way 3-D technology transformed the movie experience. Don't miss Tchaikovsky's masterpiece as it was meant to be.
