Richmond Ballet Presents: The Nutcracker

About the Event

with Richmond Symphony at Dominion Energy Center for the Performing Arts

Choreography by Stoner Winslett
Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky

This season marks Artistic Director Stoner Winslett’s 40th time staging her continually evolving, acclaimed version of The Nutcracker. Tchaikovsky’s familiar music whisks both Clara and audiences alike on an extraordinary journey, from a battle beneath the branches of a magical Christmas tree, through an enchanted snowy forest, to the Kingdom of Sweets. With its colorful sets, fanciful costumes, and beloved characters, such as the Russian Bear and Arabian Snake, The Nutcracker continues to charm generations.



Join Clara and her friends for a special party after select matinee performances of The Nutcracker! Set in Dominion Energy Center’s festive Rhythm Hall, guests will enjoy meeting their favorite characters from the Kingdom of Sweets along with an elegantly seated tea and tasty sweets all accompanied by live piano. This intimate family event is an experience not to be missed.

Please note: Clara’s Tea Party is a separately ticketed event.
