Join us for a magical journey into the world of the Nutcracker Suite

We are thrilled to announce that VOLTA will be hosting its first-ever Nutcracker Suite performance on December 16, 2023.

We cordially invite your Tiny Dancer to be part of this enchanting event! ✨

What is the Nutcracker Suite?

The Nutcracker Suite is a ballet production based on E.T.A. Hoffmann's story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King." It is typically performed during the holiday season and has become a beloved tradition in many countries. The ballet tells the story of a young girl named Clara who receives a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. The doll comes to life, and Clara embarks on a whimsical journey filled with enchanting characters, including the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Mouse King. The Nutcracker Suite features beautiful choreography, iconic music composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and elaborate sets and costumes, creating a captivating and magical experience for both performers and audiences.  The Nutcracker Suite premiered in Russia in 1892 and has been a beloved holiday classic ever since.
