Saint Louis’ favorite holiday production is back! Grand and traditional, Gen Horiuchi’s \"The Nutcracker\" is a large-scale production with glorious sets and lighting, hundreds of colorful costumes, rousing music and the talents of Saint Louis Ballet’s professional dancers alongside students of the Saint Louis Ballet School.\ \ A tradition for families throughout Saint Louis and beyond, Gen Horiuchi’s Nutcracker captures the spirit of the holidays with the two-act spectacle originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, with a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (Op. 71). The libretto is adapted from E. T. A. Hoffmann\'s story \"The Nutcracker and the Mouse King\".\ \ Saint Louis Ballet presents Thanksgiving weekend previews as well as matinee and evening productions in December.\ \
