The Nutcracker

Our fifth annual full-length production of this traditional ballet will be presented at the Arend Arts Center featuring guest artists from NWA Ballet Theatre, Oklahoma City Ballet, Oklahoma Festival Ballet and Kansas City Ballet. 

Attending the Nutcracker is a beloved holiday tradition for young and old alike. Join the NWA Conservatory of Classical Ballet for an enchanted evening with Clara as she receives her most-treasured Christmas gift, a Nutcracker doll.

Then join them on their journey through the
wintery Snow Forest, and into the kingdom of the Sugar Plum Fairy in her magical Land of Sweets.
