December 9-26, 2022 The Nutcracker

Supported by PNC

“... the most remarkable, even magical, feature of this “Nutcracker” is that nothing is what you expect, and yet through its innovations and creativity, it finds fresh ways to illuminate the age-old themes of love, play and endless possibility.” - The Washington Post

Atlanta Ballet’s newest version of The Nutcracker will be performed at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in December of 2022. This production premiered in 2018 and features state-of-the-art technology combined with lavish sets and costumes creating an immersive fantasy world befitting the most popular ballet of all time. Based on the original book by E.T.A. Hoffmann, the story takes Marie and her magical nutcracker doll away from a family Christmas Eve party and into a fantastical realm, led by a mysterious inventor.
