Toy soldiers, dancing flowers, life-sized rats, Snow Queens and Sugar Plum fairies. Sound familiar? If you’ve ever seen The Nutcracker of Middle Georgia’s classical ballet, you’ve fallen in love with the splendor of this iconic Macon performance. If you haven’t, you’re in for a real treat.

Generations of ballet lovers, parents and grandparents have made this Nutcracker the “must-see” event to kick off the holiday season. For some, performing is a family tradition, as former dancers now watch their own children on stage, or take on an adult role themselves. Experience the gorgeous costumes, amazing scenery and spectacular artistry of the local children and professional dancers who grace The Grand Opera House stage.
