MBT's The Nutcracker Suite - Sensory-friendly performance
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.

MBT has added our popular short-length version of this classic holiday tale to our 31st annual season at the Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center!  Geared to younger audiences, the Nutcracker Suite will be performed December 7-8 & 14-15, 2019. Tickets will go on sale October 1st. (online sales will close 1 hour prior to each performance time or as tickets sell out).

The Nutcracker Suite performance on December 8th is a sensory-friendly performance; purchase tickets for that performance here. Tickets are available for other performance dates at a separate link. Please see www.mbtdance.org for details.

Each performance of The Nutcracker Suite will last under 45 minutes with no intermission.

(MBT's full-length performances of The Nutcracker are held on December 7-8, & 14 at 1pm and 5pm each day, and December 15 at 1pm. Tickets are sold separately.)
