Dayton Ballet - The Nutcracker


A Holiday Tradition: Dayton Ballet's beloved The Nutcracker

Join Dayton Ballet for the breathtaking production of Dayton's biggest and best holiday performance arts tradition...Dayton Ballet's beloved The Nutcracker. 

With magical choreography by Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke, delectable sets by designer Ray Zupp, and stunning costumes by Lowell Mathwich, the story of little Clara and her adventures in the Land of Sweets comes to life on the Mead Theatre Stage. 

Dayton Ballet's The Nutcracker comprises an enormous cast, including the full professional Dayton Ballet company, dancers from Dayton Ballet II and the Dayton Ballet School, and over 100 children from the local Dayton area! 

The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Neal Gittleman, again takes up residence in the orchestra pit, giving Tchaikovsky's music the full, rich, gorgeous interpretation that it requires. The elegance, grace and sheer athleticism of Dayton Ballet's core ensemble and star dancers bring the drama to immediate, colorful life.
