The Long Beach Ballet continues its annual holiday tradition, for the 39th year this December, of presenting The Nutcracker at the Terrace Theater at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center for five performances from December 17 to 19. 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 the 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 39th 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 200. 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.
