This December, experience the classic, Christmas ballet in Birmingham. The Birmingham Ballet will be performing the Nutcracker on selected dates at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Center.

This ballet, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, was brought to America by George Balanchine in the 1950s. By the next decade, the tradition of performing this ballet at Christmastime had spread throughout the nation.

This beautiful ballet, with music composed by Tchaikovsky, will be performed in Birmingham this Christmas season by local ballerinas.
