The snowflakes, the beloved Christmas music, the magical tale: Come to the Rozsa Center to experience the timeless Christmas tradition that is the Nutcracker Ballet! The Minnesota Ballet and Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra (with Joel Neves conducting) present a fully-staged production, with live orchestra, of Tchaikovsky’s enchanting Nutcracker ballet. The Minnesota Ballet offers productions ranging from full-scale broadway-style productions to small-scale, intimate repertoire dances. The Minnesota Ballet has a bountiful selection of full-length story ballets such as Coppélia , Sleeping Beauty , Cinderella , Dracula , A Midsummer Night’s Dream , and—of course—the holiday tradition of The Nutcracker ! These productions tour with full stage sets, lush costumes, and the theatrical magic that audiences expect to see. The Minnesota Ballet’s mission , through its professional company and school, is to inspire a love and appreciation for dance, to advance the art of ballet, to increase access to the art form, and to use its resources to benefit the greater community.
