Tickets available October 2019

MBT added our popular short-length version of this classic holiday tale to our season at the Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center in 2018! For the 2019 season, The Nutcracker Suite will be performed December 7-8 & 14-15. Tickets will go on sale October 1st. (online sales will close 1 hour prior to each performance time or as tickets sell out).


Metropolitan Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker Suite is a perfect, shorter-length introduction to the theater and ballet, geared to young audiences! 



Metropolitan Ballet Theatre has been presenting the full-length traditional staging of The Nutcracker since 1989.  We introduced The Nutcracker Suite in 2017 to sold-out audiences at MBT’s Black Box Theater, and took it to the larger stage with our 30th annual season at the Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center in 2018!

Only four performance times are available for The Nutcracker Suite, which is geared to younger audiences. These will sell out quickly!

Each performance of The Nutcracker Suite will last under 45 minutes with no intermission.
