Jefferson Ballet Theatre’s “The Nutcracker

Gretna Cultural Center For The Arts

The holiday classic,
Der Nussknacker
(The Nutcracker), presented by the German-American Cultural Center and the Jefferson Ballet Theatre, re-tells the E.T.A. Hoffman tale of "The Nutcracker and the Mouseking" with music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
It is a two-act ballet, staged on some 65 professional and student dancers, with splendid scenery, elaborate costumes and special effects.
A holiday delight for both boys and girls, the show features a sword fight, a battle of soldiers and mice, international dances, athleticism and romance.
Come experience this holiday tradition firsthand, as you see Clara's Christmas party, her dream, and her visit to the land of the Sugar Plum Fairy, all with a German touch, right in the heart of picturesque downtown Gretna. Tickets are also available for these dates: Sunday, Dec. 16th, 2:30 PM Friday, Dec. 21, 7:30 PM Saturday, Dec. 22, 2:30 PM Saturday, Dec. 22, 7:30 PM
