Stanton Welch's staging of The Nutcracker is a grand spectacle of opulence and one of the most splendid versions of this holiday classic ever staged. With hundreds of roles and a myriad of exquisite details that will leave you discovering something new in every performance, Welch's The Nutcracker is a positively joyous treat for ballet lovers of all ages. Rejoice in the return of this time-honored tradition!

The ensemble of dancers that make up this beautiful production join the Houston Ballet from many parts of the world. Ranging from Brooklyn to Cuba to Japan to Venezuela, this spectrum of talent reflects the audience as well as the diversity found in the city of Houston.

The costume design for this production is outstanding as is the scenic design, led by Tim Goodchild. There were many incredible moments of the production that the lighting designer, Lisa J. Pinkham, designed magnificently. The production design, designed by Wendall K. Harrington, was noteworthy as well.

The Nutcracker runs until December 24.
