running NUTCRACKER production in Los Angeles.
Take a trip with Clara to a magical world of dancing snowflakes, Spanish chocolate, and a dashing prince. From the
Victorian-style party scene to the glittering Sugar Plum Fairy, it's the traditional full-length ballet in two acts set to Tchaikovsky's majestic score as performed live by
the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra.
The artistic interpretation captures the spirit of choreographer George Balanchine, as passed on by Westside's founder Yvonne
Mounsey, who created the Nutcracker role of Center Spanish during the peak of her career as principal dancer with New York City Ballet.
