Dec 09 - 10 2017
The Nutcracker

The full-length ballet classic, by Marin Ballet

Celebrate Marin County’s beloved Nutcracker tradition with Marin Ballet’s full-length ballet classic, rich in the dazzling enchantment of old-fashioned theatrical grandeur and holiday sentiment.

Clara’s whimsical adventure comes to life with the artistry of classical dance infused with mischievous humor, clever characters, fanciful Victorian costumes, larger-than-life sets, and the mysterious magic of the unforgettable Herr Drosselmayer. You’ll be charmed by the handsome Nutcracker Prince as he battles the brash and sassy Mouse King, introduces Clara to the sparkling Snow Queen, and escorts our young heroine through the Land of the Sweets to find the ever-delightful Sugar Plum Fairy.

You needn’t cross the bridge to find the magic……you can make treasured holiday memories with your family right here at home. Enjoy free photo ops before each performance in our sumptuously decorated Redwood Foyer.

Or, come to a Candy Cane Party to meet costumed characters for autographs and photographs.

One weekend only!


Adults:  $44

Candy Cane Party – immediately following each 1 pm performance (3:00 pm):  $10
