The Nutcracker

Would any Christmas celebration be complete without an American Ballet Theatre presentation of The Nutcracker? The performance features divine choreography, larger than life settings, and stunning costumes designed by Tony Award-winning designer Richard Hudson. The show runs from December 14 through December 23, 2018, at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa.
