The Nutcracker is returning to the Overture this December. The annual holiday tradition is a collaboration between Madison Ballet and the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. The ballet is set to Tchaikovsky’s score and includes updated, dynamic choreography.

“With this opportunity to create new choreography, we sought to engage artists in our community who can help us respectfully portray and celebrate the different cultures represented throughout the story,” former Artistic Director Sara Stewart Schumann said.
