Working Dress Rehearsal - MBT's 31st Annual Production of The Nutcracker
This ticketing page will allow you to purchase a special discounted ticket to MBT's final Working Dress Rehearsal for The Nutcracker on Friday, Dec. 6th.

*What is a working dress rehearsal?
 This performance is the same performance that audiences will see throughout MBT's 2 weeks of Nutcracker performances this season. The big difference is that you might get a sneak peek behind the scenes if our artistic team needs to make any final adjustments to the staging, lighting, or sound.
 The Artistic Director and technical team sit above you, in the back of the theater, throughout the performance. If they need to make an adjustment that requires the attention of the dancers on stage, you might hear them announce it from their booth over the speakers. You also may notice adjustments on stage made to the light or music.  
 Please do not react to any adjustment or announcement you might see or hear, it is all a part of the process of producing a ballet!
 We offer this opportunity so you might be able to get a little peek behind the curtain, and so that we may remain more accessible to patrons. Let us know if you catch any subtle adjustments that were made by the artistic staff between this dress rehearsal and the full performance run!

Metropolitan Ballet Theatre has been presenting the full-length traditional staging of The Nutcracker since 1989.  Year after year audiences are enchanted by MBT's performances which feature student and professional dancers, fabulous costumes, and beautiful scenery  including a Christmas tree that seemingly grows forever, magical dancing dolls, marching toy soldiers, giant mice, a dazzling blizzard with dancing snowflakes and a land of luscious sweets.

Metropolitan Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker is a fun family tradition that will lift your spirits this holiday season!
