Metropolitan Ballet Theatre’s 30th Anniversary Season of The Nutcracker
51 Mannakee Street
Metropolitan Ballet Theatre has been presenting the full-length traditional staging of The Nutcracker since 1989. Year after year audiences are enchanted by MBT’s performances which feature student and professional dancers, fabulous costumes, and beautiful scenery including a Christmas tree that seemingly grows forever, magical dancing dolls, marching toy soldiers, giant mice, a dazzling blizzard with dancing snowflakes and a land of luscious sweets.
