Kansas City's Nutcracker heads to the nation's capital!
An exciting new Washington D.C premiere, Kansas City Ballet brings its celebrated holiday ballet The Nutcracker to the Kennedy Center Opera House this holiday season! Todd Bolender's Nutcracker is Kansas City's favorite holiday entertainment; as soon as the curtain rises and you experience the breathtaking sights and sounds - a magically growing Christmas tree, dazzling costumes and scenery, stunning choreography and dozens of beautiful dancers, paired with the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra.
One snowy Christmas Eve, at a great townhouse where a party is in full swing, local magician Herr Drosselmeyer with gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker for Clara, the oldest child.
