The Nutcracker comes to life as our dance companies join together to enchant audiences of all ages at our annual production, Scenes from the Nutcracker. This Tchaikovsky holiday classic is abbreviated to an hour-long narrated show geared for young audiences. Children get to sit up close and are invited to meet and greet the characters after the performance. A Darien favorite since 2002, the show provides an appealing introduction to attending dance performances for the younger set.
Purchase tickets early, as shows sell out quickly!
