The Long Beach Ballet continues its annual holiday tradition, for the 40th year this December, of presenting The Nutcracker at the Terrace Theater at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center for six performances from December 16 -18, & 22-23, 2022.

As always, the beloved production bursts with special guest performances and additional surprise treats the entire family will love. In 2018 and 2019, Goldstar audiences voted Long Beach Ballet’s The Nutcracker as the “best-loved” production in the nation.

The Long Beach Ballet’s Artistic Director David Wilcox has pulled out all the stops for this 40th production of the classical tale. This production boasts a full symphony orchestra, a flying sleigh, a real live horse, on-stage pyrotechnics, and a cast of over 250. Former Disney designers Elliot Hessayon and Scott Schaffer created the enchanting scenery, Australian artist Adrian Clark designed the detailed costumes, and renowned magician Franz Harary created the special effects.

This year’s production will feature Seth Orza, former principal dancer with the Pacific Northwest Ballet, as the Nutcracker Prince, and Megan Wilcox, formerly with the world renowned Dresden Ballet, as the Sugarplum Fairy.

Performances take place Friday night, December 16th at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, December 17th at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm, and Sunday, December 18th at 2:00 pm, Thursday, December 22 at 7:30 pm and Friday, December 23 at 7:30 pm at the Terrace Theater, Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, located at 300 East Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802.
