2016 Presenting Sponsor

Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Choreography by James Canfield

NBT’s holiday production of The Nutcracker is a festive, joyous Las Vegas tradition that keeps on growing. In 2016, NBT’s company artists will lead you through the wonder and sparkle of the season with eleven performances over three weekends. Come along on a journey from the warmth of Clara’s family home to a land of toy soldiers, mischievous rodents and exotic visitors from faraway lands. Glittering holiday cheer will fill the stage and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score will fill the theater as Clara and her Nutcracker Prince dance through a larger than life world filled with waltzing flowers, nimble fairies, and moonlit snow.

New for 2016! THE NUTCRACKER WONDERLAND: A fun, family-friendly bonus experience. Before settling into your seat at The Nutcracker, you’ll want the entire family to enjoy NBT’s new bonus experience: The Nutcracker Wonderland.  Located inside the Troesh Theatre space, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, this glittering holiday environment will be worthy of many family selfies as you wander through scene after scene of holiday joy.  Highlighting The Nutcracker Wonderland experience is the arrival of a special guest to read the story of The Nutcracker to all of the children. Afterwards, everyone will venture onward to Reynolds Hall where they can refresh themselves, buy a souvenir or two at The Nutcracker Boutique and get settled into their seats for the magical journey ahead with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince. The Nutcracker Wonderland is free to all ticket holders.  Doors open 60 minutes prior to curtain at the Troesh Theatre, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, and you may come and go as you please.  The Nutcracker Wonderland is sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas.
