We love the instruction, the management, leadership and the ballet family we have become a part of.”

“The growth in my daughter’s dancing ability and confidence is what keeps us here. The instructors are very professional and care about their students.”

Ballet Rincon’s production of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition in Tucson, now
in our 22 nd year. Since 2001, our magical, professional-scale ballet production has delighted
audiences of all ages from our hamlet at the Vail Theatre of the Arts.

…It is Christmas Eve. In just a few hours the clock will chime midnight; a time of magic, and of
dreams. Our story begins as the loving but mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer presents a magical
Nutcracker doll for a special little girl, named Clara, at the family Christmas party. With this gift,
she will enter an enchanted world where her beloved Nutcracker is transformed into a young
Prince. The brave Nutcracker Prince battles the evil Mouse King, then invites Clara on a
fantastic journey through the snowy Pine Forest to the Kingdom of Sweets. Here, she is dazzled
by the lovely Sugar Plum Fairy, her handsome Cavalier, and a cavalcade of dancing confections
from around the world—but only until she awakens to discover her adventure was just the
sweetest of dreams…

Come, bring your whole family, and begin your holiday celebration with us, at the ballet!
