The Nutcracker Spectacular is the largest and longest running holiday production in Arkansas. Set to Tchaikovsky's paramount score, the production features live music by the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and a cast and crew of more than 400! This year’s performances will feature partial updates to choreography, sets, and costumes as part of the organization's Year 1 investment in the Nutcracker Project. 

Patrons can explore Ballet Arkansas’s official Nutcracker Boutique filled with plentiful holiday-themed merchandise in the lower lobby and meet Santa and enchanting characters from the show at themed photo booths. A live reading of "The Night Before Christmas" will take place during each performance's intermission.
