What if dreams came to life before your eyes? They can. Featuring a live orchestra and larger-than-life landscapes, Nevada Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker has been called “the most visually beautiful production ever staged in Reynolds Hall” by the Las Vegas Sun. Artistic Director James Canfield transforms the theater into a wonderland of moonlit snow and waltzing flowers as Clara and her Nutcracker Prince dance along the borderline of imagination and reality. Return this winter and be part of the cherished holiday tradition that speaks to the child in all of us.

Desire, despair and redemption take center stage as the season concludes with Giselle. One of ballet’s most enduring and celebrated works since its 1841 premiere, it is the story of a young woman whose love survives—beyond death—to save the man who betrayed her. Be transported into a haunting world of secrecy and spirits, and discover why dance is not for the faint of heart.
