America’s First Nutcracker.

In 1944, critics were stunned when Christensen staged the first full-length Nutcracker in America. “We can’t understand why a vehicle of such fantastic beauty and originality would not be produced in its entirety in this country until now,” reported the Sacramento Union.

It was produced on a shoestring budget, but captivated a nation. Now, during this momentous year and following a $3-million new production, see the original choreography, just as Mr. C intended it – and only at Ballet West.

Choreography: Willam Christensen
Composer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
