Ballet Austin presents The Nutcracker, December 7-23 at the Long Center.

Whether first-timer or seasoned fan, you’re in for a fabulous treat with the 51st annual production of Austin’s holiday tradition. This year, Artistic Director Stephen Mills brings you the beloved tale and his acclaimed choreography enhanced by the World Premiere of spectacular new sets and costume designs.

The vision that Mills brings to life each year is finally realized with this stunning show. The characters and moments you love are more colorful and enchanting than ever set against fabulously imaginative new backdrops. Be the first to see this decade-long labor of love come to fruition and continue the tradition.

  • Choreography by Stephen Mills, music by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky
  • Live Accompaniment by the Austin Symphony Orchestra
  • Audio description by VSA Texas available for performances on Dec 14 at 7:30pm and Dec 8 at 2pm.

Footlights – The Nutcracker

Just an hour before each production, join us in the theater for a look at the final preparations for this magical production. See the last-minute workings of dancers and production crew as you learn about the history, music, and artists involved in the production. Free for ticket holders (all performances Dec 7 – 23). Learn more.

Holiday Food Drive

This year the Long Center will be partnering with Caritas of Austin to help prevent and end poverty in Austin. Caritas serves over 20,000 people each year whose opportunities have been diminished by poverty and homelessness. Our clients include households of all kinds; many of whom are veterans, refugees, women and children. They all share a common reality: they are struggling to get by. They are currently homeless or could become homeless at any time. Regardless of clients’ past experience and future goals, Caritas works alongside each one to increase stability and self-sufficiency (learn more).

We will have collection bins set up near main building entrances, and would encourage you to bring something with you when coming to this performance (see a list of the most-needed items). Help us make Austin a better place this holiday season!

Call the Ballet Austin box office at 512.476.2163 for more information on any of these Season Ticket options.
