Experience the Magic

Christmas magic comes to the Dr. Phillips Center with Orlando Ballet’s much-loved family favorite, The Nutcracker. This spectacular show features more than 23 professional dancers and 190 children bringing The Nutcracker to life. On Christmas Eve, Clara is given a toy nutcracker, which transports her on a magical journey to a fantasy world complete with the Mouse King, Sugar Plum Fairy, dancing snowflakes, a giant Christmas tree and Mother Ginger. From the moment the curtain goes up, to the final cheers, a trip to Orlando Ballet’s Nutcracker is an unforgettable holiday treat. Watch the Nutcracker trailer below:
