The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

By Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky


Premiering just last year, Jacobs faculty choreographer Sasha Janes’ updated, stereotype- shattering version of this most popular ballet tells the story from the perspective of curious young Marie.

With the help of her Aunt Drosselmeyer, Marie learns to unleash the power of her imagination to take the audience with her on a wild adventure.

This fresh take on a fantastical story still features the incomparable score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

“It was hands down the most magical version of The Nutcracker I have ever seen.” – Pointe Magazine 2023 Readers’ Choice
