State Street Ballet Nutcracker made its debut in Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox in 2011 to rave reviews. The Nutcracker experience was very special – from the delightful Sugar Plum treats at the concession stand and charming Holiday Gift Shop to the magical performance in the fabulous Art Deco theater. The State Street Ballet returns in 2012 to recreate this family favorite.
The Nutcracker is the classic tale of adventure, fantasy, romance, and the triumph of good over evil. For almost two centuries, E.T.A Hoffman's story of Clara and her Nutcracker prince has delighted children of all ages. Set to music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and performed in the opulent setting of Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox with the State Street Ballet of Santa Barbara, California, the Nutcracker's story enchants as never before.
Don't forget to check out Christmas Tree Elegance before or after the show at the Davenport Hotel and at River Park Square.
