The Southern California tradition continues with American Ballet Theatre's Nutcracker, created by Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky and featuring sets and
costumes from Richard Hudson (Broadway's Lion King). A cast of more than 100 performers - including students from our own ABT William J. Gillespie School - accompany young
Clara on a dreamlike journey amid colorful, larger-than-life scenery, magical toy soldiers, mischievous mice, sparkling snowflakes, and a glittering Christmas tree!
