Even though its Christmas Eve, in sunny Miami it can be hard to get into the holiday spirit. Well, we recommend taking the family to George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™. Miami City Ballet’s production boasts beautiful sets, lavish costumes and magical special effects. A large cast of talented children from the Miami-Dade area join MCB’s international ballet stars to present a holiday treat for the entire family. Visit MiamiCityBallet.org for more info on tickets and schedules.
Tchaikovsky’s beloved fairy-tale ballet is superb holiday entertainment for all ages. The Miami Youth Ballet’s production, choreographed and directed by former Miami City Ballet stars Marielena Mencia and Yanis Pikieris, features international guest artists and a cast of over 100.
