About the Ballet

Dayton Ballet returns to the Schuster Center this holiday season for Dayton’s most beloved holiday tradition of The Nutcracker. Join Clara, accompanied by her gallant Nutcracker Prince, on a dreamy trip to the Land of Sweets, where she meets Mother Ginger, the Marzipan Shepherdesses, Ribbon Candy, the Dew Drops, and, of course, the Sugar Plum Fairy and her dashing Cavalier, as well as many other dazzling characters along the way. Dayton Philharmonic joins to perform Tchaikovsky’s sparkling score for a holiday event to enjoy with family and friends!
