The Nutcracker fills the mainstage at the Touhill with spectacular sets, costumes and a sizeable cast, helmed by the professional company of Saint Louis Ballet. The ensemble swells with special guest performers and the talented students of the Saint Louis Ballet School in children’s roles. The highly entertaining favorite is performed to the traditional Tchaikovsky score.
This season, Saint Louis Ballet offers 13 productions, including weekend, weekday and weeknight performances Dec. 14-23.
New this year, the Saint Louis Ballet will present a shorter, “no-shushing” performance for families with very young children or teens/adults with limited attention spans at 11 a.m. Dec. 19. The production features the same high-quality dancing and production values.
