A holiday tradition full of pageantry, magic and wonder
Clara is about to have the night of her life, and so will you. Join Uncle Drosselmeyer, Mother Ginger and the Sugar Plum Fairy as Clara travels to the Land of Sweets on a very special Christmas Eve.
For over 40 years, the Civic Ballet of San Luis Obispo has presented this holiday classic (including 25 years performing to sold out audiences at the PAC). Lori Lee Silvaggio’s The Nutcracker is filled with all the pageantry, magic and wonder that have made this one of the most enduring holiday traditions around the globe. Featuring the OperaSLO Grand Orchestra, sterling production values and our county’s finest dancers, this is a ballet experience you won’t want to miss.
