Southwest Nutcracker 1

  • Music Hall 260 South Church Avenue Tucson, AZ, 85701 (map)

This original, full-length classical ballet translates the traditional Nutcracker to Tucson in the 1880s, complete with coyotes and U.S. Cavalry. Travel with young Maria and her Nutcracker General through the snows of Mount Lemmon to the Desert Dream, where the Prickly Pear Fairy and her Caballero host a celebration with dancing chili peppers, rattlesnakes, tumbleweeds, and more. The live orchestra, lovely costumes and beautiful, professionally designed sets – combined with the stunning dancing – all make for a holiday tradition that will be enjoyed by the entire family.
