Ballet: THE NUTCRACKER. Choreographer: Ben Stevenson,
O.B.E. Dancer(s): Alyssa Springer and Artists of Houston Ballet.

Since its Houston premiere in 1987, THE NUTCRACKER with choreography by Ben Stevenson has been one of Houston's favorite and most cherished ways to kick off the holiday season. Since it first opened 26 years ago, the gorgeous and spectacle filled holiday treat has been seen by over 1,000,000 people. The dazzling production always delights audiences and is, as the Houston Ballet puts it, "the perfect way to introduce young children to the power and beauty of classical dance. Tchaikovsky's magical score, Desmond Heeley's fairy-tale scenery, and Ben Stevenson's vibrantly theatrical staging combine to create one of the most visually stunning productions of THE NUTCRACKER in the world today."

This year, Houston Ballet will give 34 performances of beloved favorite from November 29 to December 29, 2013. Performances are Nov. 29, 30 and Dec. 1, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28 at 7:30 p.m and November 30 and Dec. 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26, 28, 29 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets range from $19 to $125.
