Event Description

With a sold out run of a holiday favorite the ballet ‘The Nutcracker’ during 2017, Cleveland Ballet returns to the Hanna Theatre for only 7 shows this coming December 2018.

A production suitable to audiences of all ages, this production is Cleveland’s very own and is one to not be missed. The ballet in 2 acts is based on the original story of E.T.A. Hoffman with music composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The fascination of Tchaikovsky’s score and the suitability of the theme for Christmas entertainment, has inspired many choreographers including Cleveland Ballet’s own Artistic Director which has created a version with a twist!

Running Time: 2 hours, with a 20 minute intermission
