Madison Ballet’s annual production of The Nutcracker returns to Overture Hall in 2021 with a holiday performance that will dazzle like no other. A favorite of audiences of all ages, The Nutcracker seamlessly blends Tchaikovsky’s famous score, performed by the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, with all-new choreography to celebrate Madison Ballet’s 40th Anniversary Season.

This story follows young Clara as she dreams of traveling one winter’s night with her beloved Nutcracker doll. Escorted by swirling snowflakes and her mysterious godfather Drosselmeyer, they meet a cast of colorful characters from far-away lands in an adventure sure to bring out the child in all of us.


Per Overture Center for the Arts, all who enter the building must wear a face mask and show proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test. Please see Overture's Health and Safety requirements for full detail.
