Kansas City Ballet’s THE NUTCRACKER Returns to the Kauffman Center Stage!

December 7-24, 2022


Presented by Bank of America, Kansas City Ballet’s annual tradition,  The Nutcracker returns to the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts following its Thanksgiving weekend run at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Choreographed by KC Ballet Artistic Director Devon Carney, this re-imagined adaptation of the classic holiday tale continues to dazzle audiences each year and is hailed as “positively oozing charm” by The Washington Post.

The classic, Victorian-era story by E.T.A. Hoffman featuring Clara, the Nutcracker Prince, Dr. Drosselmeier, and the Sugar Plum Fairy is a magical theatrical experience wrapped with exquisite costumes, grand sets, and captivating choreography, all brought to life by Devon Carney. Let your wonder ignite and feel the glimmer once more as your childhood dreams return and inspire you to imagine again! Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score is performed by the Kansas City Symphony, conducted by Kansas City Ballet Music Director Ramona Pansegrau.

“I am so excited to be returning to the Muriel Kauffman Theatre presenting our wonderfully vibrant production of The Nutcracker after our performances at The Kennedy Center,” Carney said. “It means the world to me to see the joy and sparkle in the eyes of our audiences of all ages, as they are transported to a whimsical winter wonderland and beautiful land of the sweets — full of scrumptious treats and surprises.”
