Every winter, Washington, DC ushers in the holiday season with the Nutcracker ballet. This year’s production will bring a local perspective to Tchaikovsky’s legendary score as the Washington Ballet acts out a Washingtonian reimagining of the story. George Washington is the Nutcracker and King George III is the Rat King in this fun, patriotic take on a classic Christmas tale. Running nightly for nearly the entire month of December, there will be plenty of opportunity for out of towners and locals to check out this wildly entertaining spectacle.
