Countdown to Nutcracker: Opening Night is Friday, December 6!

Atlanta Ballet is thrilled to open the curtain on its 55th annual production of the beloved classic, The Nutcracker. This is our 18th year performing Atlanta Ballet's Nutcracker, a breathtaking version created by Artistic Director John McFall near the beginning of his tenure with the Company. Come opening night and see our VIP guests walk the red carpet and meet sponsor Belk's Belkie Bear! We also have an extra surprise in store for you - for the first two weeks of the run, master illusionist Drew Thomas will perform the role of Drosselmeyer! He helped us infuse last year's production with magic, and he's upping the ante with all new illusions and surprises. Watch the video below to learn more.
